Ray and Fearless respond to a silent alarm and find the cops who first responded to the alarm shot dead. They deduce that the robbers knew they were coming so they ambushed them. They wonder how they knew they were coming that's when they discover that they got a call from their station, meaning someone there called to warn them. The Captain has the whole precinct placed on lock-down. Joel, who was off duty, drops by. The Captain tells him what happened and since he wasn't there when it happened, he asks him if he's willing to question everyone at the station, he reluctantly agrees. At the same time, Fearless and Ray try to find out who it is on the outside. Fearless gets a tip off that the gang leader who was on death row (who threatened to kill a cop unless his sentenced was commuted) was aided by another cop to grab the one he got, and that he's the one whom Fearless is looking for. Ray finds himself being summoned by McNorris who raises Ray's rumored graft again. Written by
