This week’s Chicago P.D. won’t be for the faint of heart.

In this exclusive first look, the Intelligence team arrives on the scene where a 9-year-old boy was executed in gang territory. Making matters worse, neighbors and possible witnesses seem hesitant to talk about what they saw during or around the shooting.

In the wise words of Burgess, “It’s horrible.”

According to NBC’s episode description, the story gets more gruesome from here. Shortly after our favorite detectives learn that the boy’s father has a record and was part of the gang, another shooting — this time nonfatal — happens in the area.

The whole case leaves the team shaken, so they do what any Chicago show would do: They come together with a bunch of firefighters and employees of the local hospital to hold a candlelight vigil for the little boy. We expect moving shots of said gathering, sad music, and ample tears falling down the faces of those of us watching at home (kind of like what’s happening right now after watching the little boy’s mom wail at the end of this clip).

Chicago P.D. airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
