History Leading up to the Shooting
George was a leading figure in the Koshka Brotherhood and manager of their affairs in Miami. He later ran into an old dirty cop on their take named Joey Quinn and tried to start their old relationship to get their leader, Isaak Sirko, out of prison through a bribe. When he refused he held his new girlfriend Nadia hostage until he complied and again offered him the bribe. Quinn did as he was instructed and they let Nadia go, but George wouldn't let Quinn go and used him to oversee a drug deal at the club by blackmailing him. Later Quinn started avoided him and George responded by forcing Nadia to sleep with him and Quinn beat him as a result. When George killed Isaak he got drunk and got his gun and Nadia. Quinn arrived after she called him and Quinn raised his gun towards George and he put his gun down. He then slapped Nadia while Quinn warned him not to do it again but George ignored him and hit her again. This was the final straw as Quinn shot him at point blank and afterwards made it look like George shot first so the shooting would be ruled justified.
