"Two old lovebirds just moved in together, but they had a falling out and he chased her across the yard with a twelve gauge."
―Officer Leroy Tate

Phelps and Galloway arrive at the scene where James Kennedy—also known as Honey Boy—is held up in his house with a shotgun, after a fight with his wife. The woman is seen crouched behind a police car in the introduction cutscene, still exchanging childish insults with her husband whilst the husband shoots at his wife and Leroy Tate.

After a situation briefing with Leroy, the woman moves further away from the house and more officers move in. One officer crouches behind a table in front of the house, which provides little cover. As he shoots at the house, the husband fires at him, killing him instantly. It is posible to kill the suspect whilst he is shooting the first cop. Another officer breaches the front door and is shot dead almost instantly. Phelps is left to kill the sociopathic husband and the safest and easiest way to do this is to run up on the right side of the house to the living room window and shoot the suspect through it whilst he is allocating his firepower upon the officers behind the patrol vehicles. When the man is killed, the woman seems sorry for him, considering the fact that he tried to kill her.
