Storyline

Examining the dangerous aftermath of racially charged shootings in a small Southern town, SHOTS FIRED is a dramatic new event series that is a "why done it?" and a "who done it?" From Gina Prince-Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights," "The Secret Life of Bees," "Love and Basketball") and Reggie Rock Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights," "Notorious"), the 10-hour event series is an explosive look at the criminal justice system. When an African-American police officer kills an unarmed white college student, a small town in North Carolina is turned upside-down. Before the town has a chance to grapple with this tragedy, the neglected murder of an African-American teen is brought to light, re-opening wounds that threaten to tear the town apart.

Cheap try to grab racist turbulence
24 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is a "lifetime movie" trying to take on an incredibly important issue. Not really smart! Very light on intelligent police work and super heavy on possible relationships! If you like soap operas or lifetime movies, you might like. If not, RUN away as fast as you can!!!!
