CSI: Miami: Hostile Takeover

The CSI lab is attacked by an armed gunman who takes everyone inside hostage, including CSI Jesse Cardoza (coming from the LAPD). The gunman will only talk to Horatio, and the situation escalades when the hostages don’t want to do what he tells them. Afterwards, the situation becomes even more dangerous, when Horatio is forced inside with the hostages.
