A-3ES3 - A shootout between a cornered Angel's Cartel trafficking ring and I-RED security contractors has just concluded within the Beta Residential Sector of the Tash-Murkon Refinery, only a few blocks from the Bataav Intaki Heritage Site. The local hospital of the sector is currently working to deal with various injuries sustained by civilians.

The shooting started as members from what is rumored to be the last Cartel trafficking ring aboard the facility were cornered swiftly by combined Revenent Defence Corporation, Oniseki-Raata Internal Watch, and Akagi Initiative forces. The Cartel members entrenched themselves in various outlying buildings near the Heritage Site Multiplex which, at the time, was hosting a play performance.

"I thought the gunshots were just part of the show, at first", commented one audience member with minor injuries. "When they just kept going I and everyone else knew something was wrong."

A minor stampede occurred as frantic audience members tried to make sense of what was happening. It was eventually determined that it was safest to remain inside the walls of the Multiplex, and so crowds who were first to run out of the building stampeded back inside, causing some various minor injuries. A detachment of O-RIW forces established a position around the Multiplex and secured it in the event that any Cartel gang members tried to break in to hold hostages.

Meanwhile, a few blocks away the shootout was well underway. Civilians were evacuated from the immediate vicinity of the area. After about ten minutes of intense gunfire back and forth, a period of silence took place. The security teams were authorized to employ the use of military-grade stasis webification grenades and shock blasts to disorient the gang members.

Cartel members who were not outright shot to death were immediately subdued due to the coordinated actions of I-RED's security contractors. Over two dozen arrests have been performed, and the deaths of thirteen Cartel members has also been confirmed. Estimates for civilian injuries is currently around 42, with no fatalities being reported.

I-RCN will monitor the situation as it develops.
