Football fans have been known to do some crazy things, but this celebration may be the wildest yet.

A group that the Brazilian media refers to as "bandits" shot off AK-47s into the air for more than 30 seconds after a player scored a goal. This happened during an amateur football match.

The incident took place in the Brazilian neighborhood of Bangu, which is in West Rio de Janeiro.
