"Front Page News" is the eleventh episode of the third season of Blue Bloods.


When they are called to a park looking for a man with a gun, Jamie and Vinny split up to cover more ground before Jamie encounters the man who points a gun at some children. Jamie ends up shooting him and must deal with the emotional fallout of killing the man who later turns out to have committed suicide by cop.

He wants to know more about the man and Danny readily agrees to help, unofficially investigating until he starts to get a clearer picture of what motivated the suicide. Jamie is also required to speak with a trauma counselor before he can be cleared for duty again.

Meanwhile, Erin asks Frank how to deal with Mayor Poole who is supposed to testify in the embezzlement case against a campaign consultant. His efforts to avoid being questioned under oath make Erin think he might know more than he let on.
