During the course of the investigation, the on duty female police constable reminds Da Vinci that during one of his drunken sprees a few years back, he made a play for her but had not called her since that night, her and the incident Da Vinci only vaguely remembers. Da Vinci later finds out that the constable is Zack's daughter, Ramona. Simultaneously around the corner from the hit and run, Shannon, Leary and robbery detective Rose Williams investigate the shooting homicide of a convenience store clerk named Jim. Jim was a popular figure in the neighborhood, running tabs for his regular customers until they received their bi-weekly welfare checks. Rose also mentions to Shannon and Leary that Jim had been robbed four times in the past two months by a historically non-violent junkie named Lucas Ross, a kid originally from a stable upper middle class family. After it was determined that Lucas had previously broken into the store to steal cash to support his habit, Jim preferred to hand over a small amount of cash to Lucas than to go through the pain and cost of any property damage caused by a break-in. Despite these robberies, Lucas was one of Jim's regulars and treated him as such. When the investigators learn of the other nearby incident, their exchange of information leads to them believing the two incidents tied together, them being able to piece together the outline of a credible story. That story leads to a stand off of sorts, including between Da Vinci, and detectives from three different divisions each having their own idea of what best to do. It could all go down in a blaze of bullets, that is unless Da Vinci's plan comes to fruition and comes off as he hopes, he putting his own life on the line in the process if he's wrong.
