WHAT SAID:  

Hooker helps a hearing-impaired teen-ager who's been left to take a murder rap by his fellow gang members.

SYNOPSIS:  

Down at the Long Beach docks, Danny Perez, 14, holds a lookout position as his gang leader, Cruz, 22, and a big-time drug dealer Carlos Vega, rendezvous with a man selling them a big score of heroin. Instead Vega shoots the man and he and Cruz grab the heroin and make a fast getaway, giving the gun to Danny as they leave. Hooker and Romano, hearing the shot, hurry and find Danny just after he is able to hide the gun. At the police station, Danny is able to convince Hooker he didn't kill the man, so Hooker decides to take him under his wing. Discovering Danny has a hearing problem, Hooker convinces his doctor to take a look at him. Meanwhile, Vega and Cruz think Danny has squealed on them since he isn't in juvenile hall, so they make plans to kill him. Meanwhile, Vega and Cruz try to bribe Danny's father, but instead he sets them up so Cruz is arrested. Danny then confesses everything to Hooker so they are able to set Vega up and capture him with a load of heroin.
