Two minutes of bloodshed: Chilling new footage shows masked gunmen ramming a prison van, opening fire on guards, killing at least two people, then freeing narco boss The Fly in a merciless ambush of 120 seconds at the French toll.

Chilling new footage shows masked gunmen ramming their vehicle into a prison van before opening fire and killing two guards, then freeing a narco boss nicknamed ‘The Fly’ during a merciless ambush of two minutes to a French toll booth.

The deadly attack took place shortly after 11 a.m. on the A154 motorway, near the Incarville tollbooth, located in the commune of Val-de-Reuil, in Normandy, in the north of France.

At least two French officers were shot dead in the ambush which saw the attackers and detainee Mohammed Amra, 30, manage to flee the scene on foot.

New footage circulating on social media today captured the moment a black car slammed into the front of a white police truck before several gunmen dressed in black appeared to surround the vehicle with their weapons raised.

The attackers can be seen shooting at the French police van before one of them opens a door in an apparent bid to free the detainee trapped inside.

A number of officers eventually got out of their vehicles as the shooting continued.

After only a few seconds, the released inmate and the attackers are seen running out of the frame before the sequence ends.

Another video circulating on social media from a witness who was on board a bus at the A13 tollbooth shows panicked passengers screaming as shots are fired in the background.

“There were gunshots and great panic on board the bus, there is a car on fire,” the passenger wrote.

A confused traveler can be heard asking, “What’s going on?” before another declared: “They are shooting”.

As confusion continues to grow, passengers wonder if it’s the police making the racket, or something more sinister.

“No, it’s not the police,” one of them said, to which another passenger on the bus replied: “Oh shit.”

The escaped inmate, nicknamed “The Fly,” was transported between the towns of Rouen and Evreux in Normandy before the bloodbath took place.

Amra’s last conviction was for burglary, and he was also convicted of attempted murder.

A police source told Le Parisien that he was “at the head of a narcotics network” in France and was therefore considered extremely dangerous.

The detainee, Mohammed Amra, nicknamed “The Fly”, was transported between the towns of Rouen and Evreux in Normandy before the massacre.

The French publication also reported that Mohammed tried to escape from his cell just two days before his escape on Tuesday.

He would have been placed in solitary confinement and his surveillance level would have been raised to “Escort 3”.

Amra, who had a total of 13 convictions to his name, was under “special surveillance” but was not considered radicalized or suspected of terrorism, said Éric Dupond-Moretti, French Minister of Justice.

At the time of the attack, Amra was on her way from Évreux prison to court for a detention hearing which would have been made public. This would have made the route relatively easy to trace.

Prosecutors from the National Jurisdiction for the Fight against Organized Delinquency (JUNALCO) have opened an investigation for “assassination and attempted assassination by an organized gang”, offenses punishable by life imprisonment.

They are also investigating “organized gang escape”, “acquisition and possession of weapons of war” and “criminal association with a view to committing a crime”, Moretti said.

Laure Beccuau, Paris public prosecutor, confirmed that Amera had previously been indicted by the Specialized Interregional Jurisdiction (JIRS) of Marseille for “kidnapping and sequestration resulting in death”.

The two guards killed were identified as agents of the Regional Center for Judicial Extractions (PREJ), based in Caen, without their names being disclosed.

One was a 21-year-old man, father of two who leaves a widow, and the other was a father-to-be whose wife was five months pregnant.

Moretti said the injured guards were all in “life-threatening” condition.

He added: “All my thoughts are with the victims, their families and their colleagues.”

The prisoner and the gang members first escaped in two cars: an Audi A5 and a BMW 5 Series.

According to local reports, the white Audi A5 was found on fire near Vatteville, in Eure.
