However, the investigation is complicated when another police officer, Devon Lang (Wade Williams), starts to sabotage Dooley's efforts and tries to take over the case. Along the way, Dooley and Zeus face numerous obstacles, including a high-speed chase through the city, a shootout with gang members, and a tense hostage situation.
