"Under the Gun" is the ninth episode of the fifth season of Blue Bloods.


Danny and Baez investigate the drive-by shootings of three Jewish community leaders as a representative of the community pressures Frank to have them investigated as hate crimes. Frank disagrees, saying that the evidence does not yet point to a hate crime as the cause of the murders. Danny and Baez look for a link between the three victims other than their faith.

Meanwhile, Linda is mugged while volunteering at the free mobile clinic at the Jefferson Houses, the thief taking her grandmother's necklace from her. When she finally tells Danny he overreacts, insisting she stop taking shifts there to which she disagrees vehemently. She goes so far as to use Frank's name to obtain a permit to carry a gun in record time.

Elsewhere, Erin discovers that a key piece of evidence was swapped in a locked evidence room and is aghast to discover the culprit appears to be someone inside the DA's Office.
