Alexis’ world is shaken to its core when Kevin her finesse is shot and gravely injured in an attempted robbery at his job. Alexis blames herself for the accident because she arrived unexpectedly and startled the robber, which triggered the gunfire between the robber and the police. Making matters worse Kevin is shot by OFFICER ROBERT KING (mid-20s), the only white police officer serving in their local community.
