Riggs and Murtaugh head to Travis' compound where Riggs devises an ingenious plan. He siphons some gas from a pickup and begins to drive it around the compound while leaving a trail of gas in its wake. Murtaugh lights the trail and the whole housing project goes up in flames. Travis confronts Riggs in a front-end loader, but Murtaugh tosses Riggs a gun loaded with the "cop killers" and Riggs shoots Travis directly through the front scoop. Travis is still alive, but Riggs puts the trailer in gear and the burning remains of the house come down on Travis.
