Storyline

During an oppressive heat wave, a young man is brought into the precinct station after breaking out a store window to steal a fan. Meanwhile, Crime Side is no cooler, while the news area is being remodeled, and the reporters are pushed into a side area. The distraught young man, suffering from dementia, makes a break for it, and manages to steal Lt. Guyla Cook's gun, which she left unguarded as she took a break to cool off. The station is evacuated, but in the construction site that is Crime Side, the message to leave doesn't get through to everyone. Eluding the police, the gunman wanders in to Crime Side, and finds William Boot, who is trying to beat his deadline. While the man threatens him, Boot quickly establishes a rapport with him, and gets him to explain his troubled life. Boot knows a good story when he hears it, and sees his Pulitzer beckoning. Boot draws the man out, and writes the story as they talk. Meanwhile, the other reporters are scurrying to find out all they can ... Written by Anonymous
