Though it's unknown how or when the war started, it is to be presumed that the war started when Dogeyes tried to settle in North Point with the Jade Gang he formed and tried to take Winston's businesses from under his fleet, leading to Winston creating the Water Street Gang and a rivalry that lead to disagreements and standoffs by members of both Jade Gang and Water Street Gang by orders.
Events of Sleeping Dogs
After the hazing, Dogeyes decided to personally visit Winston. After meeting Wei Shen, he bragged about how he used Mimi sexually, even though he knew that Wei was her brother. Dogeyes attempted to pitch the idea of sharing the night market to Winston, rationalizing that they shouldn't be fighting like children. However, Winston quickly shot down the idea, and after he reaffirmed that he owned the Night Market, Dogeyes left, remarking Wei to say that "he hasn't changed." Though considering the fact that he and Dogeyes used to be friends, Winston argues that he has.
The fight between Dogeyes and Winston continued to escalate after Winston stole Dogeyes' minibus route, he retaliated by shooting up The Golden Koi, killing a few Sun On Yee members. Winston again escalated the conflict by taking over the drug manufacturing plant and kidnapping Siu Wah, forcing him to stop working for Dogeyes.
Dogeyes, with backing from Big Smile Lee, ordered Johnny Ratface and the rest of his gang to pose as 18K Triad members and murder Winston and Peggy, under the guise of a rival gang attack. The attack resulted in the death of both Winston and his bride, Peggy, as well as Uncle Po being shot. Wei managed to escort Uncle Po out of the banquet hall safely and get him medical attention.
Shortly after the massacre, Wei captured Johnny Ratface, and, as per request, he was handed over to Mrs. Chu. Johnny told Mrs. Chu that Dogeyes had planned the attack, before he was killed, chopped up, and put into a soup.
- "Wei, if you have a problem with me, then let's sort it out ourselves, okay? Let's not bring her into this!"
- ―Dogeyes pleads for his life before being murdered by Mrs. Chu
Wei later found Dogeyes and chased him through the docks, Dogeyes had his men try to kill Wei, but he beat them. Dogeyes was brutally beaten by an enraged Wei. Duke met Wei, and they put Dogeyes in the trunk of the car, and after shooting attackers in cars and on motorcycles, dropped him off at the Golden Koi. Mrs. Chu confronted him and forced him to eat pieces of Johnny's corpse. Dogeyes plead for his life, but Wei was unmoved and told him that it was "just business". Dogeyes was brutally dismembered and murdered with a meat cleaver by Mrs. Chu, the vengeful mother of his former best friend. Ending the war
Raymond Mak later noticed the disappearance of Dogeyes, but when he asked Wei what happened to him, Wei said that he didn't know.
