Danny consults a psychic regarding the shooting of the five-year-old boy, he gives her a sock that he picked up which belonged to the boy. She tells Danny that it is the boy’s father, he is the key to the case, he is the reason for the shooting. She is getting rage, jealousy, that is all she has.

At the station, Witten finds out that she is being investigated for having her weapon out, someone in the crowd outside the deli made a complaint. Jamie goes to see captain Espinoza and he tells her that Witten did nothing wrong, she was assaulted. Espinoza says there is a video of citizens unarmed and a cop pulling a gun on them.

Danny and Baez question Michael Carter’s father, ask if he is affiliated with a gang, he says no and is annoyed that he is being questioned because his son is on a ventilator. He tells Danny there was this one guy that got annoyed that he had his music loud but told him to bugger off. Michael Carter doesn’t make it, his parents are devasted and Danny and Baez are looking on.

They found the guy who shot at the bus, Kenny Kilmer, he has been arrested before but gets off every time and he has been in and out of mental hospitals his whole life, his social media is full of rants about everyone.

She watched her best friend’s mother kill her boyfriend and she didn’t come forward. Kimberly said she didn’t want Latisha to end up in the system. Nobody came forward because Reggie was abusive.
