During a live broadcast on the Ao Vivo TV network, the news helicopter captured shocking footage of a police chase in Sao Paulo Brazil.

The footage reveals an officer on a motorcycle chasing two teens, aged 16 and 17, who stole a motorcycle. During the chase, one of the teens threw what appeared to be a helmet at the officer before they crashed and fell on the pavement. The officer then pulls up beside them and shoots them at point blank range.

Miraculously, the two suspects survived the shooting, although one of them is at the hospital in serious condition.

An investigation has been launched by Brazilian authorities into the policeman’s actions.
