During a gunfight a man and a woman exchange fire with another woman, who follows them and manages to shoot the man in the shoulder and the woman in the leg; eventually the two fall down a flight of stairs, and the man shoots the woman and himself in the head (blood splatters on walls around them and we see their limp, blood-soaked bodies).

A woman is tackled and shoved into a van that speeds through streets, a man holds her down and presses a gun into her face; she struggles with him, kicks him, grabs the driver by the hair and pulls, the van swerves and crashes into another car throwing the woman out the open door, and she falls onto another car and we see her later getting stitches to her large and bloody head wound.
