Los Angeles police detective Lt. Ohara, a contemplative but shrewd officer, watches as his colleagues bring in a man charged with a robbery-murder spree that included a cop killing. Going through witness statements, Ohara realizes that the wrong man was arrested and that the real killer is someone who very closely resembles him - but is left-handed while the suspect is right-handed. Ohara unloads his gun and secretly passes it to the suspect, who takes Ohara "hostage" and escapes. Ohara then stashes the suspect in his home and reports back to headquarters. The killer had an accomplice, so Ohara joins the investigation. When he finds about the killer's car, Ohara lifts an identical vehicle from police impound and has his new friend drive it around until they are spotted, then quickly hides it while the cops hunt for an identical vehicle.

The final chase features Ohara and Eddie following a murderer into a warehouse. The murderer stops on a stairway and fires two shots at them before running inside. Ohara goes inside, figures out where the killer is hiding and draws him out three times to fire one shot apiece. On try number four, Ohara says "That's it pal ... all six," and then challenges the killer and his empty gun to a martial-arts fight. But we only heard and saw FIVE shots. Looking at the killer firing from the stairway, it looked like cartridges one and three did explode but the middle one was a dud, so the actor yanked his arms back as if the gun was recoiling anyway. Since the sound editor didn't see three flashes, he only dubbed in two gunshot sounds. But nothing can explain that the killer, while in hiding, had plenty of time to reload his weapon. See more
