D&D 5E Putting the Heat shootout scene in my Sharn Campaign

Unfortunately 5E D&D is not good at simulating the intensity of moving under fire. Taking cover just isn't that important so they can wade through to their goal. It's Sharn tho, so maybe the SWAT team has some tools to make the criminals REAL worried about getting caught in the open. Wands of paralysis or something.
I would absolutely expect Sharn to have SWAT teams which are probably (former) adventuring parties. Look at Force Grey for Waterdeep - a higher level example, but... you have a ranger with two blink dogs, Khelben's apprentice, a frost giant, a priest, and a guy who commanded a djinn.
