Andre gets into Marlo's debt when the stash is robbed by Omar Little. Marlo is unforgiving and takes Andre's prized ring as a punishment. When Marlo is robbed by Omar himself (losing Andre's ring in the process), he includes Andre in his plan to get revenge on Omar. Chris Partlow murders a delivery woman, telling Andre to call the police and say Omar did it. At an interrogation with Detectives Michael Crutchfield and Vernon Holley give him a photo array of suspects where Andre quickly identifies Omar as responsible. Detective Bunk Moreland believes Omar is innocent, and visits Andre's store. After seeing the crime scene, Bunk disproves Andre's identification of Omar. Holley and Bunk bring Andre in on a subpoena to court. Bunk asks a judge what a perjury charge carries (10 year minimum)causing Andre to back up on his original story. Andre looks to Proposition Joe for protection from Marlo, not realizing Marlo has recently joined Joe's New Day Co-Op. Andre grudgingly gives Joe ownership his store in exchange for $2,000 dollars and a safe ride out of Baltimore. Instead of taking Andre out town, Slim Charles escorts him to a back alley where he is greeted by Marlo's enforcers Chris and Snoop. Chris rebukes Andre's plea to not kill him and hide his body in a vacant building but promises to keep it quick as they walk off into the night.
