Briscoe and Green are investigating the shooting of a female cop. Initially they think it might have to do with her having an affair another cop. But when they rule it out. They follow a lead on the shooter and arrest him - a young black man. When questioned why he did. He says it's because he's irate at the police for messing up the investigation into his brother's shooting. Green decide to look into it and learns that there were a few oversights made or the evidence is no longer there. When the shooter's lawyer decide to mount a defense on the botched investigation, McCoy tries to make sure that it wasn't botched. So they have the body exhumed so another autopsy could be done but the body is not in the casket. So they turn to the medical examiner who did the original autopsy but she's not exactly forthcoming.
