Police filmed gangland killing

Amsterdam police filmed the February murder of gangland boss Stanley Hillis from a surveillance helicopter, the Telegraaf reports on Friday.

The film was taken for another undercover operation just metres from the spot where Hillis was shot.
Despite the presence of police on the ground and the helicopter coverage, the gunmen managed to escape in their van, the Telegraaf says. This is even though they left the murder scene by driving into a dead-end street and had to turn around.
