Brenda and Major Crimes investigate the death of 12-year-old Manuel Soto in what appears to be a gang-related shooting. His gang member father, Ferdinand, seems unmoved by his son's death, and when police find two more members of the same gang shot dead, they fear either a gang war or an internal power struggle. A bank card found on one of the dead men belongs to Camilla Santiago, and it doesn't take long to learn that she has been missing for several days. Tracing her to a rape treatment center, the truth begins to unfold. Meanwhile, Fritz has a surprise for Brenda, about which she doesn't seem very appreciative. Provenza is clearly having girlfriend problems. Written by garykmcd / edited by statmanjeff
