Lyon snaps back to attention, however, when a snipers bullet cuts Randolph down as he takes the stage. A second bullet misses, but the damage is done. As the crowd erupts in panic, Lyon spots the assassin fleeing on a motorcycle. With police chief Rocco Herbert, Lyon gives chase, but the killer gets away.
