Motorcycle theft caught on camera

A would-be thief tried to steal a man's motorcycle in Brazil over the weekend...but he was shot before he could drive away.

The entire graphic incident was caught on a helmet camera as the Brazilian man is attacked at gunpoint after stopping at an intersection.

Before the assailant could get away on the stolen bike, an off-duty cop suddenly appeared and shot him.

The thief ended up in the hospital and the bike was returned to its original owner.
