On his way home from a case one night, he is shot at while driving in his car. Marcus ends up crashing into a construction site. The man suspected to be the shooter is found killed, with bootprints of Marcus' shoes found on the site. Sherlock Holmes suspects Marcus is the killer at first, but when he visited Marcus in his apartment and used his bathroom, he found a recently fired gun in his vent, and suspects he is being framed.
