You got it.

Solution
A group of thieves took hostages while robbing a bank but the police get there before they can get away so they disguise a few hostages as robbers and duct tape weapons onto their hands. The robbers tell the police negotiator they are releasing some hostages and walk out among them while the fake robbers get shot in the swat raid.
