Mike, Ray, and the Wyatts are chased by Fallon's hoods into a railyard. They hide in an old streetcar which several bums are using for a homeless shelter. The bums demand payment, or they'll alert Fallon to the presence of his quarry...who give Frank's wallet and Mike's jacket to their "hosts". The hoods overhear one of the homeless men freaking out, and recognize Mike's jacket. While Ray and Mike flee along with the Wyatt brothers, Fallon massacres several bums before noticing his mistake. He also discovers where Frank lives, by taking his wallet off a slaughtered bum.
Taking refuge in an apartment building, the four friends are noticed by some local kids who unfortunately are on Fallon's payroll. Mike, Ray, and the Wyatt brothers look for a phone to contact the police; alas, the tenants are too scared of Fallon to help. They approach a woman who is throwing out her garbage and convince her to let them in. She has a young daughter and another adult woman in the apartment. They call the police, but they are taking too long to come. Sure enough, Fallon's henchmen soon barge into the building - kicking open doors and gunning down everybody they see. Frank, Mike and John decide they must leave the apartment so that they don’t put this woman and her family in danger. Ray, who is obviously scared, says that he’s not leaving. He proceeds to pull a gun on his friends and threatens to kill them if they leave. Mike is very shocked and angry to learn that he had a gun this entire time, and is now pulling it on them. Ray sobs and is talked into giving the gun to Frank. The woman tells the four friends that there is an escape route to another building. They leave as Fallon and his gang are terrorizing the other tenants. Mike and both of the Wyatts use a ladder as a bridge so that they can cross over to another rooftop. Ray, who has a phobia of heights, can't bring himself to follow. Instead, he attempts to bargain for his life with the promise of money to Fallon - who instead kills Ray by throwing him off the roof.
The trio are chased into the sewers by Fallon and his henchmen. At one point, Mike says that they have to stop running, take a stand, and fight. Armed with pipes, they wait for the bad guys in the sewer. Sykes, Fallon's
Meanwhile, Mike berates John for almost getting him killed back in the sewer. He didn’t have his back like he said he would. He froze and that’s why Frank was the one to subdue Sykes. Frank comes to his little brother’s defense and Mike backs down as he calls him “boss”. They then take refuge in an abandoned building. John cries that he is scared. Frank tries to console him. Mike just looks on from afar, then proceeds to call Frank “boss” again and says that the street is clear. Frank tells Mike to cool it with the “boss” stuff. They see a bus and try to flag the driver down, but she refuses to stop. This prompts Mike to start shooting at the bus. Frank tells him to stop because he’s going to give them away and get them killed. Mike punches Frank. Frank yells that he has a wife and a baby to get back to. Frank and John start to leave and Mike calls after them to wait for him.
The threesome break into a
Too late now to do any good, the police arrive. While Mike and John are rushed to a hospital, Frank receives his wallet from a police officer who comments that he has a good looking family.
