Storyline

Contrary to popular belief among many of the BAU, Reid does not know everything. He does not know how to shoot very well as he has just failed his latest firearms qualification. His lack of shooting skill is in marked contrast to the man the BAU are tracking and who the FBI coin a L.D.S.K.: long distance serial killer. In Des Plaines, Illinois, an expert marksman, unseen and in various seemingly unconnected locations during the middle of the day, has been shooting multiple people from a long distance. The target is always shot in the abdomen, all but one of the victims thus far having survived. The BAU determine that the marksman is purposeful in where he shoots his victims. Beyond a basic profile, they know that he has had specialized gun and shooting training. This means that he was, or still is, a police officer, news that does not sit well with the Des Plaines Police Department who are assisting on the case. Gideon comes up with a theory on the middle of the day shooting times. ... Written by Huggo

A New Kind Of Profile
6 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

LDSK = Long Distance Serial Killers, another name for "Snipers." Whatever you call it, or the BAU of the FBI wants to call it, that is what they have to deal with next as a shooter has picked off three people in two weeks in a park in Des Plaines, Illinois. He then continues to shoot more victims, but he's not killing anyone, just wounding them in the abdomen. What gives?

The BAU team learns on the-job on this case since they really have no profile of this type of person. They find out it has to be someone familiar with police schedules and procedures, so the logical choice is a local cop.

The cops are told this in private, and not to let the information pass fr om the room, but one of them leaks it to the press. This guy really w ants publicity! However, finding exactly who it is, is not easy and leads to a somewhat surprising and very dramatic ending. One of things that happens is "Hotch" kicks and beats up his partner "Dr. Reid!"
