Sheriff Freddy Heflin (Stallone) eventually finds Superboy (Rapaport) hiding out in an abandoned water tower. When he goes by himself to turn Superboy in, Jack (Patrick) and Frank (Nascarella) catch them and Jack fires a gun next to Freddy's good ear, leaving him completely deaf. Freddy walks all the way to Ray Donlan's (Keitel) house and shoots all of Donlan's men. Figgs (Liotta) shows up also and saves Freddy from being shot. Freddy shoots and kills Ray. Freddy and Figgs both deliver Superboy to Lt. Moe Tilden (De Niro) who takes him away. Freddy is then criticised by the rest of the Police Department for being the man who killed Ray Donlan. He decides to stay Sheriff and his ear recovers.
