Shortly after 7pm, James was with his boss Dave Conlon, who was trying to force Paul Raines to divulge information. Paul refused, so Conlon left him with James and a second guard, Stevens, to be beaten into submission. Stevens held Paul while James punched him and then slammed his hand in a filing cabinet drawer. They were stopped when Jack arrived and shot down a nearby guard and James. Jack soon killed Stevens as well, and fled with Paul from the building.
