Coming to the crack house you see that backup and a ram had arrived. Action begins when you draw your gun click with it on your person and move to the left side of the door. The ram opens the door and you go in automatically. Have your gun ready because from the left side of the picture appears a gangster to shoot you. You shoot him and Michael Bains gives up. After you cuff him an officer takes him out. When you leave the house now you can get a K9 unit to help you find the rest. But you can do it alone. Under the left cushion you find a TV remote control. Use it on the TV and press button 8 to open a passage in the fire place. Get your gun ready when you enter this crack laboratory. When you go to the far left side of the cellar and back to the right a man appears from the left side of the picture and you shoot him.

So you reach the end of the part of the story where you can't interact because from now on it is fully animated. Pat comes in and takes to evidence, quick she takes the gun off the floor and aimes at you, saying that you were BIG pain in the ass, she tells you good-bye, and… and another officer flies in and shoots her. You're happy and going to the hospital to check on Marie. She talks to you(!) and tells you that she has a… baby!!! Congratulations!
