'Shootout' Promo - copyright CBS Following the repeat of CSI: Miami's "Under the Influence" on Monday, CBS debuted the trailer for the first new episode of 2004 - "Shootout.".

In the episode, Horatio and the team must investigate two rival gangs when shots ring out in an E.R. after a gang member is admitted. The evidence suggests that an orderly in the hospital recognized the wounded gang member, who possibly killed one of the orderly's friends and alerted gang members to his location. However, the evidence doesn't match up and the CSIs discover that a cheating girlfriend, not gang retaliation, may be behind the shooting.

The trailer can now be streamed from the official CBS web site. For those of you with slower connections, here's a transcript:
