"Sanctuary"
AIRDATE: 03.02.85


WHAT SAID:  

Stacy and a seriously wounded Corrigan are taken hostage by a murderous trio who take refuge in a church, demanding safe passage to Mexico.

SYNOPSIS:  

Corrigan and Stacy are on patrol when a speeding car runs a red light. They pull the car over in front of St. Paul's Church where the car's occupants, Tom Randall, Joe Bram and Rita Holmes, exit shooting, seriously injuring Corrigan. Hooker and Romano respond to Stacy's call just as she and Corrigan are dragged into the church and held as hostages, along with Father Connors and two others. As the SWAT team surrounds the church, Rita demands they let them flee with a ransom or they will shoot the hostages. Romano and the deputy district attorney obtain the $100,000 ransom demand and the limo transport. Romano also obtains information about Rita's daughter Marcy, and they arrange to have her brought to the hostage site. When she arrives, Hooker arranges for Corrigan's release by letting Rita talk to her daughter. Hooker tries to convince Rita to give up, but she refuses and goes back into the church instead. Hooker then tells them that the car is ready and agrees to drive it himself–unarmed. Hooker drops his gun belt, but hides a gun under his jacket, then gets into the car and drives up in front of the church. Rita sends Father Connors out and Hooker is able to slip him the gun which he then slips to Stacy. Cautiously, everyone gets into the car. Hooker pulls the car out while Romano tracks the car from his position in the bell tower. As the car is about to disappear out of sight, Romano shoots and kills Bram. Hooker slams on the brakes and struggles with Randall for his gun as Stacy swings around and points her gun at Rita.
