UK terrorist Sudesh Amman's final moments after rampage captured on bodycam video

Dramatic body cam video captured the final moments of a British terrorist who stole a knife and stabbed two people just 10 days after being released from prison.

Sudesh Amman, 20, was shot dead by police in February 2020, after launching an attack on a main street in London’s Streatham, in which he shouted about how he wanted to kill the Queen. They both survived.

The chilling footage shows the moment he was shot at close range after the 62-second rampage, The Sun reported.

People can be seen running for their lives as Amman dashes along the busy street, before quickly turning 180 degrees to face police with his knife raised.

He lay on the ground for several seconds after being shot, flailing his arms and legs wildly before he stopped moving.

A bus passenger who also recorded the shooting said, “This ain’t real, this ain’t real.” A cop could be heard shouting, “He’s got a vest! Move away!” The suicide belt was later determined to be fake.

The chilling video was shown during an inquest at the Royal Courts of Justice, which recently heard that prior to being released, Amman had shared views with inmates, including how he wanted to target the Queen. 

Amman had been placed on 24-hour surveillance in the months before being released due to his extremist mindset and behavior. He was serving a 40-month sentence for preparing and engaging in acts of terrorism.

Prison officials told police in late 2019 that Amman had been radicalizing other inmates, planned to become a suicide bomber and join ISIS, the inquest heard.

He had also engaged with other convicted terrorists while in prison, including Hashem Abedi — one of the men who plotted the 2017 Manchester Arena suicide bombing.

Two separate prison psychology assessments carried out before his release — in July 2019 and January 2020 — showed he still held extremist views. 

Officials noted that Amman posed a ‘high risk of serious harm’ to the public and there was a “risk of him committing an attack, especially an attack with knives”, the inquest heard.

Despite the assessments and warnings, Jenny Louis, the governor of the Belmarsh prison where Amman was held, told the inquest they couldn’t keep him in prison longer than his sentence. 

Amman ended up being released to a probation hostel in Streatham on January 23, 2020.
