McKenna - Episode 8
The Shooting

Overview:

Some drunken young boys manage to get hold of Dale's gun. Going against Dale's request to let him handle it, Brick tries to take the gun away from one of them but it goes off. One of the boys is killed. Dale had not seen what happened and the two other boys accuse Brick of pulling the trigger.

Brick is going to be charged with manslaughter and he tries to get the boys to tell the truth. One of them may be weakening but his friendship keeps him from telling the truth. The incident stretches Brick's friendship with Dale but Dale refuses to lie, even for Brick. Instead, Dale figures out a way to make one of the boys confess the truth and so Brick is freed.

Apologies, but I have yet to write up a full guide to this episode.
