He's down but not out.

CSI: Miami's sixth season went out with a bang. Horatio stood on the airstrip next to a plane, waiting to send his son Kyle (Evan Ellingson) and Kyle's mother Julia (Elizabeth Berkley) to safety. Suddenly, Horatio crumpled to the ground, blood pooling around his body from a gunshot wound.

According to CSI Files sources, the seventh season premiere of CSI: Miami will be called "Resurrection". The episode follows up with the dire situation presented in the finale. Fortunately, Horatio does not die; however, the team must figure out who is responsible for the shooting.

Mixed in the pool of blood around Horatio's body is a trace of foreign DNA. The blood traces back to a man in prison. Whoever left that extra drop of blood is a former inmate, and he couldn't have been out of jail long. The team locates Miguel Diaz. Diaz is a known associate of Juan Ortega (Jose Zuniga), a gang member with a grudge against Horatio.

Diaz denies shooting Horatio. Instead, he insists that he was at the airstrip to catch a plane when he heard the gunshot. Seeing Horatio's body on the ground, he took a picture with his cell phone so he could take credit for the murder. Calleigh and Eric aren't impressed. They send Diaz back to jail and keep his phone.

In addition to solving the mystery of who is responsible for shooting Horatio, the team has a bigger problem to deal with. Two attacks are carried out, one against an armored car and the other against a bulletproof celebrity car--bullets shouldn't be able to penetrate these vehicles, and the damage and death that occur can only mean one thing: fused alloy bullets are in play.

Whoever has the bullets is distributing them to gang members. An eyewitness puts the perpetrators escaping on motorcycles, but this doesn't fit Ortega's gang--clearly, more than one gang is part of this. Ryan is escorting Juan Ortega in his car when one of the attacks takes place, and Ryan has to let the man get away because a woman's life is in danger. Ortega is on the loose, and fused alloy bullets are flying on the streets of Miami--but how do malfunctioning traffic lights and Jake Berkeley (Johnny Whitworth) play into the story?
