Rayshawn takes to social media and live streams what is happening inside and outside his building.
Protestors assemble at the scene in response to the gunfire and Rayshawn’s social media posts as Steven and Officer Trout get in a heated argument.
Trout makes contact with Rayshawn via cell phone, but Rayshawn refuses to talk to anyone but Steven.
In person, Rayshawn and Steven begin finding common ground, until the meeting reveals itself to be a trap by Trout.
Following a tense standoff, Rayshawn attempts to console Tyisha and Ray Jr. Meanwhile, Trout briefs SWAT Commander Alvarez and Hostage Negotiator Lincoln on the day’s events.
