Elsewhere, DI Sam Nixon and Neil are called to a shooting where they discover Sken gang member, Wesley Meeks being treated by the paramedics alongside a shocked Dominic Hardy. As he is rushed into hospital, Sam sees Wesley whisper something to nurse Tash Niles just before he dies – the name Ray Moore.
Back at Sun Hill, Heaton briefs the officers about the shooting and says he is determined to find out how Wesley and Ray are connected. Neil Manson and CO19 arrive at Ray’s club, where he is arrested on suspicion of murder and taken back to Sun Hill where Heaton fails to rile him. In CID, PCs Diane Noble and Emma Keane show Sam pictures of a red scorpion tag that has been sprayed onto all of Ray’s properties.
Lewis decides to investigate further and after talking to his cousin Dominic, discovers that the tag belonged to Wesley. It’s a clear link, but Heaton is left frustrated by the lack of a motive, when Ray claims that he has never met the victim.
