Sgt Everson (Garrett Morris) and his team drop onto the roof the apartment building and silently make their way inside and down the stairwell. Sensing their presence, Duke locks all the doors to the stairwell and starts herding his accomplices into an elevator to make their getaway. Suddenly Haskins decides that he can't go through with it, so Duke tells him to stay with the residents (who have all been herded into one room) and give himself up. When Socks suggests using the residents as hostages, Duke shoots him as per orders by the Mafia. When the police hear the gun going off, they begin shooting their way through the locked doors. Duke is shot in the back as he makes a run for the elevator. The three remaining accomplices -- The Kid, Spencer, and Jimmy leave Duke behind and hop in the moving van. The van comes barreling out of the parking lot and is forced to crash its way through a line of police vehicles. Spencer and Jimmy are hurt in the crash, and police take them into custody. When the police open the doors to the back of the truck, The Kid comes barreling out in a smaller van, but it overturns and The Kid is killed. Pop gives himself up to the police, never wanting to be released from prison in the first place. Duke tries to hide by crawling into the chimney of Ingrid's fireplace, but he is later caught when the police hear him breathing on the audio equipment left behind by the detective who was snooping on Ingrid. As the police move Duke onto a gurney, he is asked to make a statement. Duke says, 'I'm always hammering on locked doors.' He is carried down in the elevator and taken by ambulance to the hospital, in the final scene, the FBI, the IRS, the HIC, and the Narcotics Division, realizing that they captured the heist plans on their tapes, all of which were made illegally, order their tapes to be erased.
