    The First 48 (A&E)

    Interesting new show on Thursdays and premiering tonight on A&E at 10/9 pm. It follows investigators during the first critical 48 hours after homicides.

    For homicide detectives, the clock starts ticking the moment they are called. Their chance of solving a case is cut in half if they don't get a lead in THE FIRST 48. Each passing hour gives suspects more time to flee, witnesses more time to forget what they saw, and crucial evidence more time to be lost forever.
    First episode summary:
    LOCATION: MIAMI
    In the opening episode, investigators in Miami attempt to solve two brutal shootings committed at point-blank range.
    In the first case, GANGS OF LITTLE HAVANA, the team finds a young man lying dead on the sidewalk in Little Havana near an area noted for gangland violence. From the outset the murder appears to be the latest tragedy in the turf war between two gangs. At first the investigating team is hampered by a wall of silence from a frightened community. But hour by hour the full story of what happened begins to emerge.

    In the second case, EXECUTION IN COCONUT GROVE, it appears that a convenience store owner in Coconut Grove had invited someone she knew into her home and was then shot twice in the head. The detectives quickly discover that the victim also sold jewelry, and a ransacked room suggests that the murder could be the result of a robbery gone wrong. Or is that what the murderer hoped the detectives would think? With no obvious suspects, a major forensic operation gets underway with the house examined inch by inch for fingerprints in the hope of putting a name and a face on the killer.
