    Corrigan takes Detective O'Brien's niece to the jewelry store to get him an anniversary gift. Corrigan is late for work and leaves her there. The store is robbed by two men and she is shot by a man using a gun with a red laser scope. She ends up dying and Corrigan blames himself. Hooker, Corrigan & Stacey are on the case. A newswoman, Lisa(Mary Margaret Humes) tries to get the story and gets in the way. She calls the killer "Johnny Starbuckle" because the gun he uses reminds people of a comic book character. Hooker bates the crooks in by putting them down as small crooks. They stakeout different areas and catch them during a robbery. Lisa gets in the way and they get away. "Johnny" calls Lisa for a meeting because he loves the attention he's getting. Hooker and crew intercept him and Hooker battles him on a dance floor. He gets his gun and threatens him with it and he surrenders. We find out at the end Hooker is going to take Lisa out to dinner.
