Izaya and Kirin learned of a scheme of a few low-level Triad soldiers to raise the amount they charge for “protection” by 300%. Calling on an old debt, they roused Jack to assist as muscle. The group made haste to intercept the thugs in a run down area of Chinatown.
Dr. Park was at his home when three Triad members showed up, asking for the next months protection money at a drastic price increase. After some brief disagreement, Dr. Park retrieved the money requested and sent the thugs on their way…
…As the triad members were preparing to leave, Jack, Kirin and Izaya showed up and briefly attempted to negotiate with the triad members, notably with their leader, a teenager named Chen. Negotiations broke down at approximately the time that Jack threw Chen to the ground. Izaya shot one of the other triad members, enforcers to be specific, in the head, instantly incapacitating him. Chen did a runner and was apprehended by Kirin, but not before a brief firefight occurred wherein Izaya was shot in the side by the remaining enforcer, then returned fire with a severe shot to the leg, causing the enforcer to black out from the pain.
Jack brought Chen inside while Dr. Park treated the wounds of the enforcers and Izaya. Kirin remained outside and summoned his adjutant, Mei-Su, to drive up and peel out squealing her tires suspiciously. He attempted to conceal the physical evidence of the combat and constructed an account that the responding officer seemed to buy. He ordered a check of the CCTV cameras to try to identify the car used in the pickup. Izaya managed to get the footage deleted, but not before the make and model of the car were identified. The police officer claimed that forensics would be out later that day.
After the police officer left, Dr. Park, Izaya, Jack and Kirin were able to convince Chen to return the $600 that he had extorted from Dr. Park.
