A veteran cop and his young partner are called to a grocery store robbery. The vet feels things are under control and becomes distracted when he sees a fishing magazine. While he is looking away, a man jumps up from behind one of the aisles, shooting his partner. The kid dies. The story is now about the guilt and depression that follows. He receives some counseling but doesn't really focus and leaves the session angry. He is assigned to traffic until he can get his head back in the game. He hops into his squad and a voice greets him. It is a beautiful young cop who praises him and says she admires him. He is annoyed, but their conversation stops when they see a man run a red light. They pursue him and pull him over. While our guy is talking to him he sees the mask that he identifies as that worn by his partner's killer. The guy pulls a gun, fires, and gets in hid car and takes off. They pursue as she guides him through traffic, skillfully, but a group of pedestrians halt their chase and they lose him. A short time later they are called to the scene of a hostage takeover and it's the guy. This is where it turns into an Amazing Story. This is quite well done, well acted by Max Gail from "Barney Miller."
