Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the shooting death of a 14 year-old, Angel Ramirez. The boy was a good student and wasn't involved in gangs or drugs. A licensed gun dealer, Juan Domingo, was standing next to Ramirez at the time of the shooting. He may have been involved in an incident to silence a witness against him in a previous case and the police suspect he may have been the intended target, perhaps by another witness who feared for for his life. A search of boys' school lockers turns up a stash of guns. It leads them to Kevin Parker who turns out to be the son of a former policeman, Ted Parker, someone Briscoe knows well. He hopes Briscoe will do him a favor but Kevin is charged and ADA Stone thinks he has a good case against the boy. Ted Parker isn't going to let his son go to jail however.
Did You Know?
When doing the lineup for Kevin Parker the title card says the location is the 33rd precinct interrogation room. Yet Van Buren, Briscoe and Logan are stationed in the 27th precinct, not the 33rd, there would be no reason for them to be doing a lineup at a different precinct, and certainly not the 33rd since that is the precinct the suspect's father used to work out of which could be seen as an attempt to taint the lineup.
