Upon seeing on television that there is a hostage situation involving 17 people in a downtown bank, Scott heads downtown. He is forced to shoot Earl, the man holding the people hostage. After this, Scott ends up being appointed a partner, Kevin, who is a sharpshooter. The two of them go to meet a man named Korda, along with their Lieutenant, to investigate the possibility of stolen jewels. Violence ensues and Korda kills both Sam and another woman.
