Storyline

When a sniper kills a patient during her consultation with Mark Sloane, isn't he a more likely target? Her sister Carrie identifies her as Julie Langford Adams, whose grandfather Joseph Langford was the last case for Mark's dad Det. Jimmy Sloan, who walked out on his family when Mark was 10, and was never heard from again. Julie was convinced that Joseph was wrongly executed for the murder of his wife. Richard Aikins, the sniper rushed to the ER, is diagnosed by Jesse with terminal meningitis and recognized by a nurse as the "doctor" who burst through the lab heading to the roof to shoot Julie, knocking over a virus-laden bottle. Photos in his room indicate Julie was the target; the FBI ID's him as a top-notch assassin. Mark digs up his dad's LAPD notes and begins to relive the case. Steve uses the GPS memory of Aikins' rental car to meet the one paying for the hit, but is foiled when the driver throws money out and crowds block the police. The car is traced to Premium Security, ... Written by KGF Vissers

Intriguing, and a look at what happened to Dr Sloane's father...Part 1
29 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The assassin's bullet was sadly precise as it struck a patient who was in a consult with Dr Sloan. Dr Sloan thought that maybe the bullet was meant for him, but it wasn't. However the person behind the assassination was remarkably (and coincidentally I guess) linked with Dr Sloan's father, who was a police officer and who apparently left the family for New York in mysterious circumstances.

The idea of a possible romance between Steve Sloan (Barry Van Dyke) and Detective Cheryl Banks (Charmin Lee) came across as a bit too contrived (as contrived as one can be in a Diagnosis Murder plot line). Still a possible romance between Steve and Charmin would be enlightening.
