Storyline

Examining the dangerous aftermath of racially charged shootings in a small Southern town, SHOTS FIRED is a dramatic new event series that is a "why done it?" and a "who done it?" From Gina Prince-Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights," "The Secret Life of Bees," "Love and Basketball") and Reggie Rock Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights," "Notorious"), the 10-hour event series is an explosive look at the criminal justice system. When an African-American police officer kills an unarmed white college student, a small town in North Carolina is turned upside-down. Before the town has a chance to grapple with this tragedy, the neglected murder of an African-American teen is brought to light, re-opening wounds that threaten to tear the town apart.

Terrible, racially provoking, attempt at spurring the anti LE community
28 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

This show is terrible. First...why attempt to provoke the anti Law enforcement community even more? This is an attempt at spurring the "race war" and undermining LE even further. Totally fictional and made up reality of what really happens. I can't believe Fox has stooped this low. So disappointed. Also, terrible acting and terribly written. Shame on you Fox.
