Plot Overview

Terry renews his relationship with a blind girl after her father, an ex-cop turned security guard, is shot and killed during a payroll robbery at a sports stadium. While he is busy consoling her, Chris, Mike and Ryker search for a stolen ambulance involved in the robbery, as well as the thieves, only to discover that the ambulance wasn't stolen, but was checked out, which leads to the discovery that the people inside the ambulance were hospital workers. They also discover that the crooks had inside help, and that the dead guard's phone number was discovered in an apartment where one of the thieves was found dead, shot with the same gun that killed the guard.
