The death of Hougen - manga version 

Basically after Hougen had been defeated by Weed, he was given mercy by the puppy who lets him walk away. It is then when Shouji Sudou the former policeman who had been hunting for Hougen and Genba for years appears on the scene. Hougen at his last moment, attacks the man but Sudou shoots him several times until the dog is dead. 

Sorry about the Chinese language in those pages, it’s actually my scanned pages of my Chinese-translated GDW manga.
