Four teenagers, three boys and a girl, break into a house under construction in order to get high. A bit of horseplay ensues, during which the girl falls through a plate glass door and is badly injured. One of the boys drops the girl off at a hospital emergency room and flees, and before she goes fully unconscious, she tells the attending nurse that 'Joe Jack' was the name of the boy who dropped her off. Sam recognizes Joe Jack as Johnny Taylor, the son of a friend of his, lawyer Royce Taylor. He goes to see them, but doesn't get much help from Johnny, as Royce has advised him not to talk. The girl dies from her injuries, making it a murder case. Sam and Jim manage to bring in the other two boys, but get two different stories of what happened. Dan suggests talking to Johnny again, certain that his version of events is probably closer to the truth. Sam, Jim and Royce head up to a fishing cabin where Johnny is staying, but the boy picks up a hunting rifle and fires on them.
Did You Know?
When Johnny and his father go to the cabin in the woods Royce (John Vernon) throws what appears to be a Remington pump .22 rim fire rifle which would be the type of rifle that would commonly be used to rabbit hunt as John Vernon had suggested. However when outside and Johnny is shooting at his father and Stone and Briggs it is more than obvious that the rifle heard is a large caliber center fire caliber and not the quieter crack of a .22 long rifle round.
