This is the time when an out-of-service police officer saved the life of a man by shooting his machete-wielding attacker in the leg during a brutal attack in Brazil.
Claudia Kafer, 32, who was out of service at the time, opened fire outside an ice cream parlor in the city of Colniza in western Brazil on Sunday afternoon.
Kafer hurried into action after seeing 33-year-old Nelson Arruda, who was hit with a machete outside the store, where she had stopped buying a bottle with her boyfriend.

Miss Kafer was sitting in an ice cream parlor in the city of Colniza and bought a bottle of water next to her friend when she saw the attack happen and ran outside to help
She told how she heard commotion outside the store while she waited at the counter, and turned to see the attack happen.
Miss Kafer, who has been in the fight for nine years, pulled out her weapon and ran outside, identifying herself as a police officer and yelling at the attacker to stop.
& # 39; At one point he dropped the knife and I thought he would stop. But he picked it up and seemed to be chasing the victim, & she told the news site G1.
& # 39; Then I realized that I had to act and shoot quickly. When the suspect realized that he could no longer move, he dropped the knife. & # 39;
CCTV shows Mr. Arruda, who is sitting outside of the bar watching football when he is not informed by the attacker, who arrives on the back of a moped.
The man – whose face is covered with a helmet – jumps off the bike with a machete and tackles Mr. Arruda to the ground.
Miss Kafer said she identified herself as a police officer and shouted at the attacker to stop, and then shot him in the leg as he tried to swing his weapon

The attacker then starts hacking Mr. Arruda while lying on the ground and trying to defend himself.
At one point he manages to kick the machete away, and while the attacker goes to get the knife, he stands up and runs away.
The helmet-wearing attacker quickly picks up his weapon and points a new blow at Mr Arruda, on which he stumbles while being shot in the leg.
The moped driver runs away quickly and leaves his employee behind.
Miss Kafer then walks into the frame, drawn revolver and pointing at the man on the floor before the recordings end.
The police have since identified the attacker as 21-year-old Cremildo Ribeiro and have accused him of attempted murder.
