all hitmen killed
Following the assassination of Faustin crime family Don Mikhail Faustin, Nikolai Bellic was due for payment by Underboss Dimitri Rascalov, who met with Petrovic crime family Don Kenny Petrovic and arranged a truce, ending the 2008 Faustin-Petrovic War. Rascalov arranged for a meeting on the Brooklyn waterfront at Red Hook, in a warehouse, where he would pay Bellic his hit contract money. Bellic was accompanied by Little Jacob, the Underboss of the Hillside Posse, who was friends with him and wanted to keep him safe.
When they arrived, Rascalov introduced Ray Bulgarin back to Niko Bellic, as Bulgarin was not only the Don of the Bulgarin crime family, but an old enemy of Bellic. Bulgarin and Rascalov attempted to kill Niko, and Little Jacob stepped in, and a gunfight began.
Bellic and Jacob shot it out with the Russian Mafia, killing several of them. More Bulgarin hitmen arrived at the scene as Rascalov and Bulgarin fled the warehouse in their limousines, and soon, the NYPD arrived at the Red Hook Warehouse. Jacob and Bellic drove off in an NYPD Squad Car, escaping the shootout, and driving to the Homebrew Cafe in Brooklyn.
