KIDNAPPED FOUR-YEAR-OLD, AND DENNY CRANE SHOOTS A HOMELESS
MAN -- WITH A PAINTBALL GUN -- ON ABC�S �BOSTON LEGAL�
�Gone� � While Denise Bauer shops with her housekeeper and the woman�s four-year-old son, the unthinkable happens when the boy is kidnapped by a known pedophile. An FBI special agent tells them that technicalities prevent the Bureau from getting involved, but he strongly suggests that, as private citizens, Denise and Brad Chase conduct their own investigation.

Meanwhile, a homeless man throws a rock at Denny Crane for not acknowledging his request for money and Denny shoots him � with a paintball gun.
