The undercover officer was with his son having ice cream when the robbers walked towards them.
The officer grew suspicious and got his gun out. Before the robbers could shoot, the officer opened fire, prompting the robbers to flee the scene.
The ice cool officer chased the robbers with the ice cream on his hand, without dropping it.
Local media reported that a young man was found near the scene with gunshot wounds to his chest. Police believe the man is one of the suspects in the rampage as he has a criminal record. He was rushed to the hospital. The officer arrested the other suspect.
