  • Episode Description
  • Briscoe and Green investigate a school shooting, in which four students are killed and a dozen others are wounded. It soon becomes apparent that more than one child fits the profile and the evidence, but an e-mail sent by one of the students skews the investigation towards one particular youth with a violent history. McCoy goes head to head with Jamie Ross, who is acting as the teen's defense attorney, and who argues that the e-mail is inadmissible because it is privileged.moreless
