Police said that 24 gang suspects were killed in the gun battle. It was one of the deadliest police operations in 16 years.

The bloodbath prompted criticism from human rights groups including Amnesty International. They slammed the police for the “reprehensible and unjustifiable” loss of life in a neighborhood mostly populated by Black and poor people.

The number of people killed in this police operation is reprehensible, as is the fact that, once again, this massacre took place in a favela,” said Jurema Werneck, executive director of Amnesty International Brazil.

As reported by sources to DailyMail, The gang members were apparently armed with military gear and protected their turf with an arsenal of grenades, guns, and rifles. Security forces recovered six assault rifles, 15 handguns, a machine gun, 14 grenades, and a round of artillery ammunition. At least 14 purported members of the Comando Vermelho were apprehended.
