The Twisted Case

Four bullets, one dead, four suspects. A struggling police officer, Jake Michael, is introduced to a new case by the FBI. The case is related to a random shootout taken place at a bridge; with four bullets being shot and one man dead, the police take in three people in custody. All of them with the same suitcases and the same pack of cocaine. With this new lead, the three victims turn into suspects. Diving deeper in the case Inspector Jake finds out this is more than just a random shoot out. It is a preplanned game by an anonymous to murder someone on the bridge. He needs to find the link between all three of the suspects, a link that placed them on the bridge that day when the shootout took place. Or, is there no link at all?
