It is suspected of intentional killing, gathering people to fight, provoking trouble, forcing trade, etc. It has done harm to one party. The people of Donggang are filled with indignation by all kinds of crimes committed, but the forces of Song family can only keep silent.

In early 2018, Liaoning Provincial Public Security Department received a mass complaint letter pointing at the Song brothers in several old cases in Donggang, including one homicide case and two serious injury cases. Liaoning Provincial Public Security Bureau referred the case to Benxi Public Security Bureau for thorough investigation.

After receiving orders to investigate the case in other places, the Benxi Public Security Bureau drew up a skilled police force and formed a 4.22 special group to make full efforts in the investigation and arrest work.

By investigating the shooting and murder cases 20 years ago, the special task force stripped cocoons and implemented the evidence, so that the Song brothers pleaded guilty to the law in front of the ironclad evidence in Rushan, and all 75 suspects involved in the case were captured, taking down the Song family brothers who dominated the gang in one fell swoop. A total of 27 criminal cases, including two cases of gun killings, were verified by the special task force, 140 land seizures were seized, and assets seized and frozen amounted to more than 8.8 billion yuan.
