Rebel Without a Cause

Plot hole: When the first police car arrives at the observatory, the policeman there tells them that the kid (Plato) holed up in the observatory has a gun and had "wounded a kid earlier." However, when that same policeman arrived at the mansion, he and his partner only ran into Plato and then followed him to the observatory. He had absolutely no way of knowing what had happened at the mansion prior to them getting there, which is when Plato shot one of Buzz's buddies.
