The Story of GTA 5 Prologue Mission

After entering the bank, Michael controls the hostages and lock them in a room. Trevor blows the vault door with charges detonated by the phone's remote function. Then, Trevor collects the cash in the vault. When you go out of the vault, you see the guard arrest Michael, remove this mask, and point a gun at his head. As Trevor, you kill the guard to rescue your friend Michael. Then, Trevor and Michael run to the exit while Brad set charges on the door.

After blowing up the door and open the shutter door, the trio escapes the bank. Right away, the cops come on police cars. They fire at police officers and run away on their car while being chased by the local cops.

The car driver is killed, and Michael takes over the steering wheel. They run to helicopter designation spots and try to cross the railway, but the car is hit severely by the train and cannot run anymore. They leave the car and walk to find the chopper. However, in the village, Brad and Michael are shot by Dave Norton, an FBI agent. Michael is seriously bleeding, and he asks Trevor to leave and run away.
