La Confidential

Ed's whole motivation towards solving the case was for his father who was murdered by an unknown person he calls 'Rollo Tamasi'. Ed and Bud both after a big fight, decide to work together and seek refuge in the Motel that Dudley kept using to convince unwanted guests to leave. The two become the target of many corrupt officers and they are caught in a shootout, killing all officers who try to get in. Dudley enters and shoots Bud, Ed discovers that Dudley is 'Rollo Tomasi'. Ed manages to get hold Dudley at gunpoint, he leads him outside where he shoots Dudley. Ed tells the Heads of the Department how the whole Nite Owl Massacre was a plot to get rid of Dick Stensland who (along with Leland 'Buzz' Meeks) betrayed Dudley over some heroin. They give Ed a medal and say that Dudley died a hero. Bud (who survived being shot) leaves with Lynn.

Continuity mistake: Bud and Exley are sitting in their car talking - Exley looks OK. His lip and eye are almost healed and there's only a little black and blue on the upper part of his left cheek. Than in the next scene with Lyn he looks like he's been beat up again worse than before. (01:56:10 - 01:56:40)

Question: Why did Exley appear so traumatised after killing the man in the elevator? He is, after all, a police officer in homicide, and he killed people before that. Also, did he kill him intentionally?

MikeH

Chosen answer: A 12g shotgun blast at that range would cause an incredibly bloody death, especially as there is a good chance it hit the man in the face. Exley has killed a person in the line of duty before this, but not in such a spectacular way. And while he may not have meant to kill him he chose to shoot over letting the man escape.
