Lin Dongxue sat down in the car and looked down at her mobile phone. She breathed a sigh of relief. "It’s resolved on my brother’s side. A hostage was shot, but they’re not in danger."
"That's good." Chen Shi kept staring ahead. At this time, they were following the paparazzi's car and had already started driving.
Chen Shi was very careful and the other party never found out. The red car entered a neighborhood one hour later and the two also entered after them. They tailed them until the other party went to a building.
Chen Shi looked at the elevator and saw that it stopped on the 15th floor. Lin Dongxue asked, "Do you want to go up?"
Chen Shi thought. "According to their habits, they will shoot the incident location from the opposite building ... The opposite building will soon have an incident occur. Hurry up and go over!"
The two reached the 15th floor of the opposite building quickly. Chen Shi put his ear on the door of the three units on the east side to eavesdrop on the movement inside. Then, he took out the detector and swept it around the area. They found a slight wireless signal on one of the doors.
Chen Shi whispered, "The eavesdropping device should be installed inside the house. Let’s break in!"
"This... This isn’t in compliance with the standard procedures!"
"It’s an emergency. Did you bring your gun and handcuffs?"
Chen Shi took out the lockpicking tools and unlocked it swiftly before pushing the door in. There was no one in the living room. When the two went to the bedroom, they saw a thin, shirtless guy playing with a radio. He looked up and saw the figures from the window’s reflection. He was so scared that he almost jumped up. “Who are you guys?”
Lin Dongxue showed her badge. "Police. We suspect that you illegally possess a gun!"
"Gun?" The guy was shocked.
Chen Shi took the detector and scanned over the radio. The signal was very strong. The guy said, "This is my hobby. It doesn’t break the law, right?"
Chen Shi glanced at the window and said, "We made a mistake. There’s no way to photograph the window of this house. It should be another unit."
"You guys should have figured it out before rushing in. You almost gave me a heart attack." The guy complained.
"Sorry, we’re in the middle of an emergency... By the way, do you have any couples who quarrel a lot, problematic single-parent families, etc. living on your floor? Basically anyone that’s facing big problems."
"I don't know what you're talking about!" The guy replied in a daze.
Lin Dongxue explained, "We are investigating illegal possessions of guns."
"I don’t know what guns you’re talking about, but the room opposite of me is a little weird. It seems that there is a man and a woman, or maybe a man and two women because I often hear those kinds of noises in the middle of the night... You know the kind. However, I’ve never seen a woman go out. The man doesn’t seem to have any serious work either."
Chen Shi shook his head and motioned for Lin Dongxue to head out.
The two went to the door on the opposite side and Chen Shi was about to pry the lock open again. Lin Dongxue said, "Let this not be a mistake this time. We just apologized for so long."
Chen Shi opened the door and a woman in underwear ran out. "Dear, you’re back..." When she saw a stranger coming in, she ran to the bedroom in a panic.
Chen Shi shouted, "Stop her!"
Lin Dongxue rushed over quickly and walked into the bedroom. She saw a gun and bullets on the dressing table and the woman was about to get the gun. Lin Dongxue quickly knocked her down. Chen Shi rushed in and took the gun.
"What are you doing! Are you robbers? I’ll shout!" The woman shouted and struggled under Lin Dongxue.
"Be more honest!" Lin Dongxue handcuffed her.
"Handcuff her to the pipes. Don't let her run away."
Lin Dongxue did as she was told and the woman who felt like she was cuffed to the pipes for no reason screamed hysterically. Chen Shi glanced out at the window. In the corridor window opposite them, two figures rushed away quickly.
Chen Shi beckoned Lin Dongxue and the two sped downstairs, blocking the two paparazzi who were about to get in their car.
Chen Shi raised the Makarov pistol in his hand. "Why don’t you have a look and see what this is?"
The paparazzi pretended to be surprised and said, "Wow, a pistol!"
"Don’t play dumb. We only found this place by tailing you. How did you know that the person in the opposite unit had a gun? And it was before the police found out too. Explain it!"
One of the paparazzi nervously glanced at the other, and the other paparazzi smiled. "Someone provided us with clues."
"Oh really?" Chen Shi sneered. "Then this person should live here, right? Call him and tell him to come out. We will confront them face to face."
"This... This... We have to protect the identity of the person providing the clue, right?"
"Don’t play this trick with me. Would the police not protect their identity?"
"You should talk to our boss."
Chen Shi pointed at the two of them. "I suspect you have a list of gun owners. You’re hiding instead of reporting it in order to capture news materials. This already constitutes breaking the law!" He raised his gun and the two were trembling with fright. Chen Shi shouted, "Lie on top of the car and don’t move! Wait for the police to come!”
The two looked at each other awkwardly, put down the equipment in their hands, and obediently lay on the car. Lin Dongxue stepped up and searched for their mobile phones. When she took out the stuff in their pockets, she found various fake documents. They were truly professionals in their industry.
Lin Dongxue called Lin Qiupu and a police car came not too long after. They took the two back for interrogation.
The woman with the gun was also taken away. Her situation was a bit shocking. She was a missing person that was reported missing by her family for over three years. The man living with her was a pervert and imprisoned her illegally.
However, day after day, the woman actually became dependent and admired the man. However, this man recently brought in another woman. This woman became jealous. At this time, a pistol descended from the sky and increased her hatred.
Today, she had intended to use the gun to kill the other woman when the man and the woman came back. Fortunately, Chen Shi found her in time, otherwise it would have been another tragedy.
These truths were only known after a few hours of interrogation. The police immediately arrested the pervert, but the two imprisoned women cried and shouted saying they didn’t want to be rescued. They were even willing to testify for the pervert in court. People could not help but think that Stockholm syndrome was truly terrifying!
The two paparazzi were brought back to the bureau for interrogation in separate rooms. No matter what was asked, they’d only reply with a single sentence: "You should talk to my boss!"
Lin Qiupu asked, "Do you think you’re just working to make money? Do you realize this is a violation of the law?"
The paparazzi said disdainfully, "We haven't just violated the law once or twice. Freelance journalists are already a gray profession. People need to eat, officers. Honestly, how can we compete with the big media in obtaining news?”
"But, this time you are breaking the law. You’ll need to go to jail!”
"Why do we need to go to jail? We just took some news material without interfering with the parties, just like the cameramen who film seals in the North Pole. Even if the seals are killed, they wouldn’t be able to intervene. This is the professional conduct of journalists!"
Lin Qiupu smacked on the table angrily. "Because you’re sheltering the criminals! Three people have died and a policeman was killed in the line of duty. Do you naively think that the court won’t hold you accountable? You guys should anticipate eating the prison meals!"
