On August 29, 2011 two armed robbers attempted to rob an armored vehicle in Galeria Itália, near the Três Américas shopping mall in Cuiabá, the capital city of the state of Mato Grosso in Brazil. Shootout between the vehicle guards and robbers resulted in three deaths – one guard and both robbers.
One of the robbers was shot in the head and died with an impressive skull crack. The other one was shot in the leg and attempted to escape in a vehicle he stole from a woman in the parking lot, but rapid bleeding caused him to lose consciousness and hit a truck.
One of the reports I read said 4 people eventually died, which could mean that one of the wounded guards passed away while receiving treatment for the wounds in a hospital.
Here’s a CCTV video of the shootout:
TV report by MS 24 Horas had better quality video but graphic scenes are blurred out:
