THIRTY people including three children have been killed by eight gunmen in two cars driving around northern Rio de Janeiro, an official told Brazilian radio.
The shooters killed 15 people in the Nova Iguazu neighborhood around 8:40 pm (1340 AEST), followed by another 15 an hour later in Queimados, Secretary of Security of Rio de Janeiro state Marcelo Itagiba said.
The group appeared to be "made up of police officers", he said.
Human rights groups in the past have accused police death squads of killing street kids.
