Random Acts of Violence
Warrick (Gary Dourdan) is the focus of this intense hour in which he allows emotion to trump evidence when he investigates a drive-by shooting in his old neighborhood.
Gunfire rips through the house of Warrick's former mentor (Keith David), who runs a recreational center, killing his 9-year-old daughter in her bedroom. Officers believe the actual target was a white teen who was dropping off his black girlfriend next door. When a suspect is nabbed with the murder weapon, a vengeful Warrick is certain the man is guilty---an assumption that leads to even more violence. Across town, Nick probes the death of a highly disliked worker who's found in a computer room with a crushed skull.
