- — GTA V description at Rockstar Games Social Club
Trevor meets Tao Cheng (who is high on drugs) and his translator at a bar. Shortly afterwards, Trevor receives a call from Chef, warning him that the Aztecas are on their way to Trevor's meth lab in order to kill Trevor and destroy his business.
Trevor arrives at the lab and locks Cheng and his translator in a freezer. Chef and Trevor rush into the lab just in time before waves of Aztecas start to descend on the meth lab.
If Ortega was spared, he will join in on the Aztecas assault, but is killed by Trevor in the process. After the shootout, Trevor releases Tao and his translator from the freezer. Trevor tries to restart their negotiations now that the threat has been dealt with, but Cheng's translator refuses. He gets in a car with Tao, claiming he has seen quite enough of how Trevor operates, and he and Tao drive off.

The Senora Beacon Newspaper
"Sandy Shores has been torn apart by violence once again after rival drug gangs clashed in a shootout at the Ace Liquor store, which is rumored to be a front for a drug manufacturing operation. If I had a dollar for every meth lab they'd found in Sandy Shores over the last decade, I'd probably be able to afford one of those fancy fiberglass roofs for my trailer by now. Remember the good old days in Blaine County before methamphetamine when people would let off steam by drinking themselves unconscious every night?"
- @lspapacarlos - "chinagadazo los varios aztecas got mad casulties at the alamo sea that shit gotta get put right"
- @right4eva - "U read about that meth lab in sandy shores? Those redneck druggies can keep killin each other far as im concerned cancel out some of them babies they keep havin. Right?"
Weazel News Radio
"Bloody shootout at a meth lab in Sandy Shores. In hillbilly news, more violence at the Alamo Sea where local drug dealers clashed with chicano gang The Aztecas at the Ace Liquor store in Sandy Shores, which is an alleged front for a Methamphetamine manufacturing operation. Our reporter spoke to this man at the scene. "It was terrifying, I was really scared that it would affect the street price of crystal. I love smoking crystal."
- Small snippets of this mission can be viewed in the second in-game trailer.
- The truck that breaks through the gates can't be destroyed until it does so.
- This is one of the few occasions for the player to obtain a Phoenix, if the vehicles didn't explode during the mission.
- When Trevor enters his Bodhi at the beginning of the mission, the radio will always be tuned to Soulwax FM and Tao will be dancing to whichever song is playing, suggesting that this could be his favorite radio station. He will also dance along if the radio is tuned to LS-UR (enhanced version only), FlyLo FM, Non Stop Pop FM.
- After Trevor traps Tao and his translator in the ice box and the shootout begins, the player can sometimes see that some of Ortega's men are in fact Vagos, and can be heard yelling things such as, "Vagos run this, bitch!" and "Oh, shit they got another Vago!". This is most likely a developer oversight. The same dialogue is heard in GTA Online missions that involve the Vagos.
- Due to a glitch, Ortega may still appear in this mission even if Trevor has killed him beforehand.
- Trevor locking Cheng and his translator in a freezer might be a reference to The Hangover Part 2, where the trio lock Chow in a freezer because they thought he was dead, but later found out he was alive.
