Sergeant Greevy and Detective Logan investigate a shooting death involving a fellow police officer. Veteran patrolman Freddo Parisi shot and killed an African-American drug suspect, Tommy Richardson, after the victim pointed a gun at him. Internal Affairs is satisfied but Greevy has his doubts, especially after he learns that Parisi was involved in a previous shooting. It's a thorny case with complaints coming from the African-American community and from the police union. The more they investigate, the more convinced they become Parisi planted the gun on the victim. It's not an easy prosecution for ADA Stone however. There are no witnesses and Parisi's partner is backing up his partner's story. When it turns out Tommy was out buying drugs, getting evidence from the drug dealer becomes crucial. Written by
