When there's a shooting at city hall that leaves a councilman dead, the detectives try to find out who would want to kill him. But later they believe that a water inspector who was wounded was the target. Eventually they discover that the shooter is a man who claims that the inspector was helping someone put them out of business by making their water bill extremely high. When he is arrested, and when they try to find the gun he used, his lawyer claims that someone broke into his home, possibly the police, and took the gun. Eventually they learn it was the Feds who broke in and they were using a secret warrant because the man's business is being investigated for selling items to countries that they're prohibited to sell certain things to. And when he is tried, his lawyer cries outrage over the secretive nature they operated under.
