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.

Awesome show much needed!! Cant wait to see more👏👏
24 March 2017 | by ttjonessjSee all my reviews

This show is awesome. It's about life in America its truth. "Some" people can't except who they really are and don't want to believe there are cops who shoot because of color.The world still has racism and "Some" can expect who they are and "Some" can't not because there frauds and dishonest. I pray this shows continues to warm hearts and open minds to those who want change and believe in change. I see the comments and the most disgusting ones are the ones who probably sit home and say n-word or say that's what they get. Which is so unfair most of the comments seem like hatred or don't believe in change. But I do so I will continue to watch this show and pray for those of weak minds and hatred hearts. ONE LOVE ONE LIFE ONE CREATOR 🙏 ✊✊✌
