Chapter 1

Bosco scowled as he and Yokas arrived at the scene of the Domestic. Looking around he saw the husband sitting with a group of guys around him and the wife holding a bloody towel to her head.

"Well at least someone broke it up before we got here." Faith said with a shrug.

"Yeah but look at the wife. Visible injuries mean automatic arrest. Why can't people just keep their damn hands to their selves?" Bosco growled as they walked over to the group of guys. "What the hell happened here?" Bosco asked the angry husband.

"Just a small disagreement, nothing that concerns you." The guy said as he crossed his arms in front of him. "So why don't you go and direct traffic somewhere."

"Why don't I just let my fist meet your face jagoff." Bosco said as he took a step towards the guy.

The guy then took a step towards him and Faith pulled Bosco back. " We aren't leaving until we find out what happened here." Faith said as she calmly tried to keep the peace.

********** *********** ********** **********

An hour later they managed to get the whole story and the husband was sitting in the backseat of the RMP handcuffed and on his way to the station.

"I'll have your badges for this." He growled in frustration.

"Yeah we're shaking in our boots." Bosco laughed as he drove to the station.

"You will be when I get finished with you officer." The man said as he slumped down in his seat.

Chloe and Amanda were jogging through the park before their late afternoon shift over at the 56th precinct. They were patrol cops over in that area but they loved jogging in the 5-5. Chloe started laughing at something that Amanda was saying as they stopped near a park bench to stretch out some of their muscles before they continued on their jog.

"So anyway the Captain was laughing so hard at what he was doing that the beer he was drinking came flying out of his nose." Amanda said shaking her head.

"Ew that must have been so gross." Chloe said shivering in disgust.

"Yeah but I have seen worse." Amanda said with a sigh.

"Officer's Harper and Williams." A male voice said from behind them.

Chloe and Amanda turned around with frowns on their faces.

"What can we do for you?" Chloe asked the guy with an uneasy feeling in the pit of her stomach.

"You could die for me." The man said as he drew his weapon and started firing.

Chloe hit the ground hard before she managed to grab her ankle and draw her off duty gun, returning fire. She saw the suspect get angry and take off towards the tree shaded area, and she jumped to her feet.

"You know Sully you could be a little bit more cheerful today." Davis said looking over at his partner who was wearing yet another gloomy expression.

"Well sorry Davis but I'm not feeling at all cheerful." Sully said sarcastically as he looked at the street around him.

"You know what your problem is?" Davis asked him seriously.

"No but I suppose you're going to tell me." Sully said with a grunt.

"55-Charlie." Dispatch said over the air.

"It's the fact that you don't get enough exercise." Davis said repeating the same thing he had been telling Sully since they started working together. "55-Charlie go ahead." Davis said into his radio.

"55-Charlie it's going to be a 10-13 with an off duty officer hit." Dispatch said over the air. "It's going to be in the middle of the park off west 8th and Central."

"55-Charlie copy off west 8th and Central." Davis said as he leaned forward and hit the sirens.

************ ************* ****************

"Did you just hear the call Davis and Sully got?" Faith asked as they were driving in the RMP.

"Yeah so?" Bosco asked as he looked around for a good place to eat.

"Off duty cop down I'd say we better back them up." Faith said as she was about to hit talk on her radio.

"Fine." Bosco growled as he hit their sirens and took off towards the park.

"55-David we're also enroute to the 10-13 at the park." Faith said into her radio.

"Copy that 55-David." Dispatch acknowledged.

Chloe looked at her friends blood stained clothing and clutched her to her chest. Looking at the direction the suspect had run off into she took a deep breath. She had been about to run after him but her friend had cried out in pain and asked for Chloe to call for help. Chloe's blonde hair was stained with blood at the tips from when she had bent over her friend to start CPR the first time she lost the pulse. Now her jogging shirt and pants were soaked through and through with her friend's blood and with her badge hanging loosely around her neck Chloe was getting angry. Chloe's off duty gun was back in it's holster at her ankle, 4 shots fired from it. She saw the blood trail leading off in the direction he had run off in and knew that she had hit him at least once.

"55-David we are on scene at the park, staging for 55-Charlie." Faith said into her radio as her and Bosco exited their RMP and waited for Sully and Davis.

"Copy that 55-David." Dispatch repeated.

At that exact moment Sully and Davis arrived and all four officers started walking towards the location of the call. Their hands clamped on the butts of their guns they saw a young blonde woman clutching a badly bleeding woman in her arms.

"55-Charlie we need a bus at this location for a gunshot victim." Sully said into his radio.

"Copy that 55-Charlie." Dispatch repeated.

"Excuse me ma'am we need you to back away from the victim." Faith said from her spot.

Chloe looked up at the sound of the female voice. Noting the uniformed cops her hand reached up and she flashed the badge hanging from around her neck.

"This is my partner, please hurry and get a bus here." Chloe said with a desperate look on her face.

"We need a description of the perp and direction of travel." Sully said gruffly.

"He ran that way but I didn't get a good look at his face. He was wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap pulled low over his eyes." Chloe said shaking her head as she pointed in the direction he ran. "I returned fire and I think I wounded him."

"All right." Faith nodded her head as she knelt down next to Amanda on the other side.

"We need a SO to this location for an officer involved shooting." Bosco said into his radio.

"I work for the 5-6." Chloe said absently. "So does she."

"55-David we also need a 5-6 SO to this location as well." Bosco added into his radio.

"Copy that 55 David." Dispatch said into his radio.

Bosco looked at the scene in front of him and shook his head. He had a feeling that this was going to be a long shift and a very long report that he couldn't get out of writing. He looked at the fear on the young cops face and cursed softly under his breath. Whatever had happened at this scene was only the beginning and he knew it deep down in his gut.
