Priority Homicide investigates the killing of an Iranian businessman and his bodyguard, cut down in a parking garage by a drive-by shooter in a dark SUV. With cables cut to the video surveillance cameras, only witnesses to the shooting are available - the dead man's widow (Layla Moktari) and the doctor (William Graham) who offered assistance. Brenda must deal with Layla's son Faraz, who is now the male head of the household and isn't very cooperative with authorities. Brenda's other big problem? FBI agents from the Terrorism unit, who clearly have an interest in the victim but remain tight-lipped against sharing any information. To further complicate things, her boyfriend Fritz winds up assigned as the official liaison with the LAPD for the case.
