Biography

Armando Armas is working for his mother Isabel Aretas, who is a drug kingpin and killer, as her right hand man. He helped her to escape of a Mexican prison. Isabel sends him to Miami, asking him to recover a large sum of money that his father Benito had hidden, as well as to assassinate the people responsible for the arrest of his father and his death in prison. Isabel demands that Armando kill Miami detective Mike Lowrey last. At a party celebrating the birth of Marcus' grandson, Mike is gunned down by Armando and left in a coma for months.

Chastened by Isabel for targeting Mike first, Armando continues to murder other targets on his list during Mike's recovery. After his recovery, Mike is determined to take revenge and tries without success to recruit Marcus now retired, causing a cold between them. Mike violently obtains the identity of a Booker Grassie arms dealer from an informer.

Realizing that Mike will ignore orders not to investigate, Captain Howard reluctantly allows him to work with the tech team in charge, Advanced Miami Metro Operations (AMMO), led by Mike's ex-girlfriend, Lieutenant Rita Secada. While the team watches Grassie during an arms market, Mike determines that the buyers intend to kill Grassie and intervenes, but fails to save him. Later, Marcus is called by Carver Remy, a former informer who believes that the assassin is after him. Marcus contacts Mike and the pair go to Carver, but it is too late to save him. As Armando prepares to shoot Mike, a female pedestrian gets involved, resulting in Armando in not wanting to shoot a civilian. Armando escapes after a fight with Mike.

Captain Howard later reveals his intention to also retire, offering Mike the advice he needs to find a path in life. He is brutally murdered by Armando a few moments later. Armando arrives in a helicopter to rescue his partner Zway-Lo but kills him when he blocks Armando's ability to shoot his pursuer, Mike Lowrey. As he lines up a shot, Armando says to Mike "Hasta el Fuego". Shots from his partner Marcus create a cover for Mike, who falls into the nearby river.

AMMO is closed due to the failure of the operation. In private, Mike reveals to Marcus that Armando could be his son. Before joining Marcus, Mike worked as an undercover agent in the Aretas cartel where he met Isabel. They fell in love and intended to flee together, using "Hasta el Fuego" as a secret slogan.
