The Escobar Brothers are a group of brothers who have taken to a life of crime, feeling invincible because no one has caught them. They have been accused of drug dealing, robbery, vandalism, and then murder after killing Metro-Dade Detective Dickey Hawkins during another robbery attempt. The Escobars hole up in the Maze, an old, condemned hotel where squatters and homeless people use as a shelter. When they are discovered there, Metro-Dade police show up to arrest them, but an impatient Detective Tim Duryea (Hawkins' partner) bum-rushed the Maze which resulted in a brief gunfight and then the Escobars using the squatters/homeless as hostages to ensure their escape. Elio kept trying to sexually assault a homeless girl named Gabriella until her brother Georges intervened, and was killed by Elio for his efforts. Raul, the leader, negotiated a helicopter and ransom for the hostages' release from Lieutenant Jack Davis while the other brothers were rough on an undercover Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs.
