    Earlier today, a masked gunman who identified himself as a military policeman hijacked a bus in Brazil at the Rio-Niterói Bridge, taking several people hostage.

    The man who earlier today hijacked a bus in Brazil was shot by a police sniper, according to a live feed by Globo. The hijacker was apparently killed, although there has been no confirmation of this information.

    In a tweet posted by a user named Diniz, a man in a mask wearing a white t-shirt was seen leaving the vehicle. The man then threw a jacket towards the police and proceeded to go back inside the bus. The man is later seen falling on the ground, apparently shot.

    Another tweet shows a blurred image of the same man lying on the ground with a police officer beside him.
