Synopsis for "Shoot"

Government investigator Penny Carnes reviews tapes from a school shooting and tries to connect it to similar events: mass killings of children by children with no clear motive. After obsessing over the video tape recordings of the events in order to give a testimony to a Congressional panel, she realizes that one man is present at four shootings. An FBI connection discovers that the mysterious blond man in a trenchoat is a transient named John Constantine. When another shooting occurs, she seems him on live television.

One night, she goes back to her office after hours and finds Constantine standing in her office. A friend of John's had a divorce and his wife took their son to Louisiana, where he was killed in a school shooting. He has studied the violence to try to find an explanation and it's not violent video games or artificial coloring in food but the sheer desperation in many of the children's lives: they know at a young age that they have nothing to live for and Constantine encourages her to look at one of the surveillance tapes closely to see what one of the victims says before he dies. She looks in horror as he reads the boy's lips and he says, "Shoot".
