  • A 6 year old girl is shot while at recess. Her classmate who is not much older than she was had the gun. As the storyline unraveled, it is revealed as to how and why the little boy got a hold of the gun in the first place. So sad.

    This is a heart-wrenching episode. I absolutely loved it, but at the same time I could tell I was starting to cry a bit, especially when Elias tells the detectives why he had the protect himself from a gang member. He never meant to shoot the little girl. Elias witnessed a murder and therefore was a target since he could easily tell police what happened. And it all took place just outside of his babysitter's house. I could not believe a little boy could be capable of shooting someone before watching this episode. It's so sad that these things really do happen. Wonderful episode and terrific writing.
