Episode Summary

EDIT
During a typical morning rush hour in downtown Miami, an unseen sniper chooses three victims at random and opens fire, killing each with a single shot to the head. Horatio and his crew rush to the scene, which is quickly mobbed by TV news reporters eager to spin the murders into a national story. The initial investigation doesn't reveal much, as there were no witnesses and little evidence remains. But the case heats up when the sniper strikes again, killing two more innocent people.moreless

  • Arguably the best episode of the first season.

    9.8
    KILL ZONE was definitely the best episode in the first half of Season 1 of CSI:Miami, if not the best episode of the entire first season. The action-packed episode is so exciting that it constantly keeps viewers alert and paying attention, especially during the last scene when Horatio is in the sniper's scope. The episode reminded me exactly why I watch this series - because of the intense action and nonstop thrills, all combined with good scientific techniques (even if this type of technology is hard to find, let alone if it exists). Since it's the first season, we didn't see too many of those one liners of Horatio and we were treated to a great episode, too.moreless
  • My Favorite! Very Intense!

    10
    A sniper in a gilly suit on top of a skyscraper, what could go wrong?! 3 people are caught in the crossfire and who would guess that this guy is professionally trained when the wounds are in the "Kill Zone" from over 600 yards (6 Football Fields) away. Very intense at the end when Horatio's life hangs in the balance when he is on the wrong end of the sniper's barrel. The question is, are the conditions right? If so, then the death of a lead character would decide the fate of this gripping television thriller! Will Horatio survive? Or will he fall victim to a shot in the "Kill Zone?!"moreless
  • Kill Zone

    8.9
    A sniper killed 3 people in downtown rush hour. The kill zone is right above your left eye, in between the eyes, and in your right eye. Witnesses say they heard 1 shot and screetching tires. The 4th vic was shot in the temple. The sniper shot a tourist from Oklahoma. 2 shooters. One was on the ground and the other in the 10 story building. It has to be the Marine Corps b/c they're the best snipers. The young boy was trying to protect his father b/c he thought the 4 guys had a gun so he shot at them.moreless

    • Because of the D.C. sniper killings (which occurred during October of 2002), there was talk of delaying the broadcast of this episode. However, with two suspects arrested and charged with the murders before the start of November, CBS decided to air this episode during the November sweeps as planned.
