Bank robbers armed with explosives and high-powered rifles have plunged a Brazilian city into terror early Monday, taking civilians hostage and even putting some on their cars while making their escape.

Video shared on social media showed a booming shootout and men dressed in black marching hostages down a street in Araçatuba, 320 miles from São Paulo and home to almost 200,000 people.

After ransacking at least two bank branches, the criminals drove away with hostages on their cars’ roofs, clinging on to keep from sliding off. At least three people were killed in the clash, including two civilians.

The brazen attack is the latest in a series of increasingly violent bank heists in Brazil.
