Episode Summary

EDIT
Sipowicz and Clark Jr. are on the scene of a homicide, where the victim was shot in the groin and the head. The two witnesses on the scene don't offer them much help. Jones and Medavoy look into a robbery where the store owner claims to have shot at a Latino man. Three blocks away, McDowell and Ortiz are on the scene, where a Latino man has been shot. This man claims to have been shot while being robbed just down the street. Back at the squad McDowell finds out that her sister, Michelle, has called her twice. She calls her back and finds out that she been in town for the last three months. She meets with Michelle, who she sees is six months pregnant and has been beaten up. Michelle doesn't want Connie to have her husband arrested or brought in for any kind of talking to; since she doesn't believe it would make anything better. McDowell gives her the key to her apartment and tells her to go and see a doctor. Clark Jr. and Sipowicz find and interview woman named Chloe who was involved in a domestic dispute their victim one month earlier. She denies any knowledge of what happened to their victim, but she can't readily account for her time, so she offers them the location of Antwan Butler, someone who she says their victim burned on a coke deal. Back at the squad, McDowell comes back and tells her fellow detectives about her sister's situation. Sipowicz wants to do something to help, but Rodriguez wants him to take care of grabbing their suspect first. McDowell and Ortiz go to the scene where another Latino body was found, this corpse looks to be the man shot in Jones and Medavoy's robbery case. They go back to the hospital to see if they can talk with their original shooting victim. He is still in surgery, with a bullet lodged near his spine. They talk with the victim's brother, who tells them that their victim knew the woman whose apartment he showed up at when he was shot, at the scene the woman and the shooting victim didn't acknowledge knowing each other. Meanwhile the other detectives and a couple of uniforms go to grab their suspect. He flees out the window and fires one shot injuring a uniformed officer. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview their suspect but he doesn't know who their victim is, he does admit to knowing the woman named Chloe. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. leave to pick up someone who was caught trying to sell some of the Palm Pilots taken from their victim's apartment. McDowell's brother-in-law Frank is brought in for questioning, since Sipowicz (her first choice) isn't available, Jones and Medavoy agree to have a talk with him. They tell Frank that he needs to leave his wife alone and go back to where he came from. Frank claims to hear the wake up call, but McDowell isn't convinced that her colleagues' warning was enough; what she really wanted Sipowicz in there to scare the crap out of Frank. Her dissatisfaction with Jones and Medavoy's performance in the interview room causes a little tension in the squad. McDowell herself is stressed over the whole situation with her sister. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. begin their interview of the guy who selling the Palm Pilots; he mentions that Chloe was on the scene with him and also admits to shooting their victim in the groin, but has no knowledge of a second shot. McDowell and Ortiz start to reinterview the woman who claimed not to know their shooting victim, when McDowell, who is still on the edge with everything else going on, scares the woman into telling them what she knows about their victim's shooting. The shooting victim, an old college boyfriend, is the actual father of the child she is raising with her husband. She was letting him sneak for visits with the child. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. reinterview Chloe who corroborates the Palm Pilot guy's story, so they still don't know where the shot to the head came from. Haywood is being briefed by the detectives on the Latino shooting, when she pauses to tell Jones that he must have an important call to take. Anderson is in the doorway making a "call me" signal in Jones' direction. Jones asks Haywood not to break his balls in front of his boss. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. find out that their victim was shot in the head with his own gun; they decide to reinterview the partner. Jones and Medavoy go to the hospital to tell the Latino shooting victim that the real story is known, he continues to stick with his story. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. find their victim's partner was trying to leave the city; they determine and he admits to pulling the trigger for the second shot. Later that evening, Maya and Baldwin play "Truth or Dare." At Connie's apartment Connie tries to help her sister get things worked out, when Frank shows up at the door asking to talk with Michelle in private. Connie is reluctant to let her sister go with him, but she relents when her sister seems willing to go.moreless
