Storyline

Sgt. Greevey and Det. Logan are looking for Brutus Walker, a suspect bin the robbery of a gun store and arrive at a building just as a man is thrown from an apartment window. Minutes later, police officer Pete Rennick is shot on the roof. The obvious suspect is Walker who witnesses claim was responsible for throwing the man out of the window. As the investigation progresses however, they come to learn that Rennick was a dirty cop who would steal drugs from various busts and then resells them. Logan for his part is also irritated by Rennick' partner Nicki Sandoval who he feels is reacting oddly to her partner's death. Secret tape recordings are key to solving the case. Written by garykmcd
