"Shawn!" Gus hissed in a low tone. "Don't go in there! Wait for backup!"
"Gus, if we don't go in, he's going to escape!"
Gus reluctantly followed Shawn into the abandoned building, staying in stealth mode.
Shawn stopped suddenly and held his arm out to Gus.
"You hear that?" Shawn whispered.
"I don't hear anything. In fact, I don't think anyone is here!" Gus exclaimed as they snooped around.
Shawn gasped as he turned around to see their suspect jump out of an unnoticed closet, grabbing Gus into a chokehold and pulling a knife.
"Get back!" he yelled to Shawn.
Shawn slowly put his hands up.
"Hey man, I don't think you want to do this."
"I said GET BACK!"
Shawn looked between the fear on Gus's face and the panic and desperation in the attacker.
He could hear faint sirens but knew they had no time and that he had do something.
Giving Gus a look, Shawn stepped forward and did a roundhouse kick, casting the knife across the room.
Gus twisted and elbowed the assailant, sending him to the floor.
"Dude! That was totally awesome!"
Gus smiled and held out his fist.
"You know that's right!"
