Crossfire is the second chapter of the six-part anthology film Batman: Gotham Knight.
Detectives Crispus Allen and Anna Ramirez, partners and members of the Major Crimes Unit hand-picked by Lt. James Gordon, are assigned to take the recently captured Man in Black , whose true identity is identified as Jacob Feely (an escaped inmate from Arkham Asylum with an expertise in advanced electronics and explosives), back to the asylum to be incarcerated. On their way, they argue over whether Batman can be trusted: Allen says they're running errands for a vigilante, while Ramirez replies that Batman has changed Gotham City for the better. As they are heading back, Allen declares his intention to leave the MCU, and Ramirez pulls into a vacant lot to confront Allen. However, the two get caught in a gang war with rival mafia leaders Yuri "the Russian" Dimitrov and Sal Maroni. With his thugs gunned down, Maroni takes refuge behind Allen and Ramirez's patrol car, which the Russian subsequently destroys with a rocket launcher as the detectives manage to get clear in time. Allen is rescued by Batman, who proceeds to take out the Russian and his thugs, but Maroni then threatens to kill Ramirez only to be dispatched by the vigilante as well. Batman recognizes Allen and Ramirez as Gordon's hand-picked officers and remarks that Gordon is a good judge of character, and disappears.
