A heavily armed gang took over a southern Brazilian city overnight — grabbing hostages, shooting two people, robbing a bank and leaving a street littered with cash, according to reports.

Roughly 30 hooded suspects descended onto the streets of Criciúma in the state of Santa Catarina in 10 cars just before midnight in a takeover that lasted around two hours, Globo News reported.

The city’s mayor, Clésio Salvaro, told reporters the “bandits” had looted three or four sites — including a Bank of Brazil branch.

Several people were taken hostage and forced to block streets to stymie the ensuing response from authorities, photos from the outlet show. They were later released without injury, according to Salvaro.

At least two people were shot and wounded, including a police officer and a guard. The officer, who was struck in the chest, was listed in stable condition, the outlet reported.
