You want me?


Come get me then, motherfucker.

Detective Soleno.

How are you doing, sir?

Tevi, look at you,

lookin' all grown up.

You look good.

How you been?

Uh, I'm well.

You taking a break from college?

No, sir. I, um...

Finished college.

I'm done.

You graduated?

All right.

You working for your old man?


Oh, okay.


So why am I here, Tevi?


What am I doin' here?

I don't know.

Well, you gotta know something.

Something's happening

in here, right?

Spencer, just...

Who else is in there?

Nobody. Okay?


I don't know, nobody...

Don't bullshit me, Tevi.

Why don't you go back

to your car, sit down.

I've been in my car all day

watching this fuckin' warehouse.

All I wanna know is why.

Spencer, I can't.

What the f*ck

you mean you can't?

Your old man called me down here

to stake out this warehouse.

You know what he told me?

"Stay here till

everybody else leaves.

Keep an eye open."

You gotta tell me somethin'.

What am I lookin' for, Tevi?

It's better you just

don't know some things.

Is this family business?

All right.

All right.

I'll be over here

if you need me.

Okay, good.

Thank you, detective.

Don't be a dick.

Hey, hey, hey. Hey, hey, get down!

What the f*ck are you doing? Get down!

Come on, come on, come on.

Hey, what the f*ck was that?

A fuckin' gunshot.

How many inside?


- How many would shoot?

- Three.


Stay low, stay right

behind me, all right?


Hey, hey, hey.



F*ck! F*ck! F*ck!

I'm dead, Tevi.

You need to get out of here.

Come on.

I think he's in the sideline.

Hey, stay there.

He's bleeding.

Tevi, that way!

To the right! To the right!

Where'd he go?

Not far.

Put that away.

Over there. Come on.

This guy got a name?

- Patrick.

- Patrick, Patrick.

- What...

- Hey.

- What are you doing?

- Trust me, okay?

I want you to circle the block,

you see anything, just yell.

- Got it?

- Yes.

Keep that in your pocket.


This is detective Soleno

with he NOPD.

I'm here to help you.

Patrick, you don't have to

be afraid no more, all right?

All you have to do is

come out with your hands up.

I'll have an ambulance

here in two minutes.



- Dude.

- -What happened to you?


Come on, come on!

- Tevi, who is this guy?

- I don't know.

- Have you seen him before?

- No.

Is he one of Garvan's men?

It's something different.

What do you mean,

something different?

There! I see him.

- You missed him.

- -Shit!

I'll get him on the way back.

There, look.

We got him.

I think we got him.

Not yet.

He's going in the canal!


How do you feel, buttercup?

I don't know you guys.


Not yet.

But you will.


Yeah, it hurts, huh?

This is only the beginning.

That's right.

This is the best

you're gonna feel all day.

You guys are all the same.


I'm sorry! Sorry!



You know what?

I don't believe you.


Okay, man! Listen, listen.

Please, I'll give you the money.



We don't want your money.


Where's Vic?


Who's Vic?

Do you know a Vic?

Never heard of him.

I guess you're all alone.

Now you belong to us.

Okay, look, I...

I told Vic I didn't have

the money, but I do.

I'll give it to you

instead, all of it.

Please, I can give you... i can

give you a hundred grand.

Give me 24 hours.

You like cars?

I have a hook-up. What

do you like, Mercedes?

Corvette? I...

Whatever you want.

Just tell me.

Let's work out a deal.

Garen, listen to me.

Listen very carefully.

We don't want your money.
