Phelps and Stefan Bekowsky approach the warehouse store and a shootout begins. Phelps enters the right side of the storing room door along with Bekowsky. He kills six suspects in the building. Two of them have shotguns, one has a Thompson and the other three have revolvers.

A suspect in an overcoat flees through a door that leads upstairs to the catwalks. Another suspect with a shotgun is in cover at that doorway. As Phelps approaches, the suspect flees upstairs as well. Phelps pursues them, but encounters another suspect. Phelps quickly deals with him and continues pursuit of the other two suspects. Upon reaching the catwalks, the suspects fire upon Phelps with his gun. The man with the shotgun is dealt with, but the suspect in the overcoat goes down a ladder at the other side of the catwalk. Phelps follows again in close pursuit. He goes out the storage room door to find Jacobs taken hostage by the suspect. Phelps kills the hostage taker and saves Jacobs.

If you kill the robbers quickly enough, the mission may end before going to the storage room and Jacobs being taken hostage.
