WMG / Homicide: Life on the Street

Munch pretended to shoot Pratt
Shooting Gordon Pratt, even with the trauma involved, was out of Munch's character. However, by stalling the investigation by playing with Bayliss, whoever did do it (probably within the BPD) can get away with the deed, and no more of the unit's time or energy would be wasted on Pratt.
