"I don't know?" Qadira tried to save the water from spilling.
He threw the glass to the floor. "Somebody just kill an officer I knew since she came out the academy all you say I don't know." Waving the gun in front of her face with the nozzle pointed in the air. "This is her gun and I'm going to kill the man who did it."
"I really don't know."
Lt. Vinsetta snatched the gun from him. "Stop show boating."
"Mr. Frankel is not here to save your ass," Lt. Vinsetta said. "These kids all the same watched a person die and then sealed their mouths. Your friend Mario was murdered." He pushed himself beside her in the booth. "You kept silent."
"It was Mrs. Rivera," Qadira said with her scrunch face shoving him away. "And the police won't do a thing about it."
"Moved back," Lt.Vinsetta said pointing his finger in her face. Chef grabbed his arm.
DA Vaal grabbed Chef and threw him to the floor.
"PP and his boys killed Mario." Qadira struggled out the booth. "The guy has an afro with sideburns. Khalilah should know him, he hangs with Valerian as his right hand man joins him in threesome."
"Go pick him up," Chef said, breaking free of DA Vaal. "How long will you chumps continue to clown on me before making an arrest."
Lt. Vinsetta stormed out the restaurant. He ignored the questions where he was going from DA Vaal. He cruised down Ebony's beat and parked in front of the bus stop where Floyd and Trevone waited.
"Officer Newberry gives us a ride to school," Floyd said as Lt. Vinsetta approached them. "Did she send you?"
"No, but I can take you," he said.
"She's not coming," Trevone said..
Ebony did a lot of good but she won't be remembered for it, Lt. Vinsetta thought. "Come on kids get in the car. Clicking the door, he gestured for them to take their seats. He had the clear the streets before taking down Tattle Tale gang and Mrs. Rivera.
"Is she dead?" Floyd asked. "Did Mrs. Z send a killer for her?
Lt. Vinsetta stayed calm to get enough information out of the kids. Grief and guilt makes mouths run.
"It's my fault she's dead." said Floyd throwing his chain in the ground.
