Archival news footage of a notorious incident that took place in 1992. Detectives of the Organized Crime and Triad Bureau tracked down a group of robbers hiding on the 23rd floor of an apartment building at 3am. When a SDU (swat) unit attempted to arrest them, the robbers fired a Kalashnikov rifle and threw grenades onto the street before escaping out the windows.
In the resulting six hour gunbattle, all six robbers (five men and a woman) were caught, at the cost of seven police officers seriously injured from grenade fragments. The incident led to a complete revamp of SDU raiding tactics.
