"Killers" - Ellison's sentinel-like vision enables him to identify the rooftop assassin who killed his longtime friend, an undercover police officer who had infiltrated an organized crime ring. After the detective reports his eyewitness account of the late night murder to Captain Banks, notorious hitman Tommy Juno is arrested and Assistant District Attorney Carmen Sanchez brings charges against him. When Juno presents an airtight alibi and questions how a normal human being could make a positive identification from over 200 yards away - in the dark, Ellison is accused of manufacturing evidence, on "The Sentinel" airing WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on UPN.
While the trauma of the murder leaves Ellison with sporadic sensory block-out, Tommy Juno is released and Captain Banks warns Ellison to leave the thug alone. After the vengeful detective pursues the case anyway, a furious Banks takes Ellison off the streets and revokes Sandburg's access to the police department. Ellison begins to doubt himself when he prevents another assassination attempt by the same evasive hitman and is then told that Juno has been lying near death in a hospital for several days.
