DESCRIPTION: (from A&E's web site, July 2009) When someone kicks open a door in South Central Los Angeles and shoots a mom and dad, the LA Gang Unit is stumped as to why. Targeting a mom is virtually unheard of in Gangland. This clear violation of the gangster code has Detectives Torres and Carrillo of the Gang Unit stumped. Their only hunch is that the victim's son's sudden disappearance might have something to do with the shooting. When Torres and Carrillo's hunch turns out to be right, they're able to get an ID on the shooter, and the Gang Unit launches into a manhunt to bring him to justice. / Someone is shooting Crips in South Central Los Angeles. Now it's up to the LA Gang Unit to find the shooter before the Crips do. The trouble is that no one talks in this neighborhood, not even the victims. So without witnesses or an ID on the shooter, the Gang Unit has to do what they do best, hit the streets to see what they can learn on their own. When Deputy Calderon finds clues written on the walls of South Central, the Gang Unit is in a race against time to find the shooters and calm escalating tensions between two of the area's most dangerous gangs.
