Storyline

Before shift, Officer Ed Wells impresses all the new officers including Reed with stories of his ignore-all-danger style of police work. The senior officers including Malloy are not impressed or happy. Wells ignores Malloy's desire to safely handle a man with a gun and hostage and instead busts in taking the suspect whose gun shot misses Wells. Reed is impressed with Wells while Mac chews Malloy out for not handling his own calls. A call about a man taking a boy turns out to be a father trying to take his son to the barber. Malloy and Reed backup Wells on a call about a man with a shotgun. Wells rushes the house but is downed with a load of buckshot. Malloy and Reed use their car to shield them as they rescue Wells. They visit Wells in the hospital and Reed has learned another lesson. Written by Anonymous
