So I spawned at the Sandy Shores hospital after dying in a car chase as Michael with Trevor and Franklin riding in the wings. I went around the back and picked up the body armor that spawns there, and then stole a nearby ATV. As I was driving by Trevor's trailer, I figured I'd switch to him and see if he was there, which he was. I went outside in time to see Michael turn the corner and begin to ride away, which is normal procedure whenever you switch to protags close by.
Here's where things got interesting.
For sh*ts and giggles, I decided to take a couple pot shots at Mike with a sniper rifle. The shots didn't register, but he sped off off yelling "You're a maniac Trevor" or something to that effect. Right after that I proceeded to do my habitual killing of Ron for
being Ron loitering outside Trevor's trailer. This time around, he died via grenade launcher. Without fail, I obtained a wanted level, so I decided i'd hide out in the trailer and lie in wait for the police.
But they didn't come.
They still had my position (mini map was flashing blue and red) but none of the squad cars were heading in my direction. I brought up the map in the pause menu to make sure I was seeing it right. Lo and behold, they were going in the exact opposite direction. Feeling puzzled, I decided to leave the trailer to see what would happen. My wanted level was still at 2 stars but the police didn't have my exact location yet so the vision cones were visible, and the stars were flashing. What happened next left me like this.
I stood outside and admired Ron's charred body for a few seconds before I noticed that the police were finally heading my way. One squad car was on the same street and it's cone of vision washed over me, so I prepared to duke it out. Not only did the wanted level remain flashing, the car went right by me as if I was a pedestrian. Bewildered, I turned to look in the direction in which it was heading to see where the hell it was going.
Next thing I know, Michael comes careening around the corner on the stolen ATV yelling "gimme a break" with two squad cars behind him. The nearest one rams him off of the ATV and he goes skidding across the ground. You already know what happens next, because it's happened to every single GTA V player at least once. Before Mike even begins to get up, the cops exit their cruisers swiftly and pump him full of lead. I don't know if it was a coincidence or not, but right after they neutralized him, I lost the wanted level.
I only had time to snap one decent picture before they dispersed.
I flipped his body via pump shotgun to see if I could get a shot of his face, but the suit is a dead giveaway (no pun intended)
In hindsight I should have switched to Michael right after the ordeal, to see if he would spawn at the Sandy Shores hospital again, and to see if I could replicate this.
Long story short: Spawned as Michael in Sandy Shores, stole an ATV, switched to Trevor who was at his trailer, got a wanted level for killing Ron as Trevor, cops chased after Michael instead and killed him, ignoring Trevor's misdeeds.
Has something like this happened to anyone else?
