Terrifying moment robbers shoot dead pregnant woman and her colleague after bursting into store | The Sun

TWO armed robbers burst into a shop before gunning down a pregnant woman and her colleague.

Shocking footage shows one of the armed crooks running into the store in the city of Manaus, Brazil, wielding a gun.

He can be seen chasing Vanessa Araujo de Carvalho, who was seven months pregnant, into the back of the store.

The 40-year-old dashed into the shop's bathroom, but was shot.

Amid the drama, her colleague Jania Simplicio attempted to hide by ducking behind the store's counter.

But, thinking the coast was clear, she reemerged and the second gunman took aim at her with his weapon.
