Mesrine's golden BMW 520 was boxed in at the entrance to the intersection and police marksmen in the rear of a lorry immediately in front of their car threw open a tarpaulin. Twenty rounds were fired at point blank range. Mesrine was hit 15 times. A coup de grâce was then administered with a pistol. His mistress Sylvia Jeanjacquot lost one eye and suffered lasting damage to her arm. Her pet dog was killed. (2 November 1979)
