Assault on Precinct 13

In South-Central Las Angeles, a local gang steal a cache of assault rifles and pistols. Now Lieutenant Bishop, a newly promoted officer, is tasked to overlook the decommissioning of Anderson police precinct during its last few hours before closing. That afternoon members of the gang shoot and kill a young girl, the girls father shoots back and is then chased to the precinct, at the same time a prison bus pulls into the station on the way to another prison with a sick prisoner. When the gang members arrive everyone becomes trapped inside when they begin shooting. It soon becomes clear the gang are taking no prisoners and don’t care if they die either. Bishop and the secretaries decide to free the prisoners in order to help them fend off the shooters, trying to also find a way out where they wont be shot on sight.
