Events of L.A. Noire
During the investigation of Scooter Peyton's murder, Officers Cole Phelps and Ralph Dunn found a Smith & Wesson Model 27 revolver, nickel-plated with pearl grips. Using the serial number, they traced the owner, Schroeder to his apartment on Boyle Heights, 203 South Gless Street.
The two arrived, with Phelps asking if he was the owner of the revolver, to which Schroeder didn't deny. Phelps then revealed that Scooter Peyton was murdered by the same weapon. However, Schroeder denied being the murderer, and in fact employed Scooter. Schroeder attempted to find his gun in his apartment to absolve himself, however the gun wasn't there, prompting Phelps and Dunn to arrest him. Schroeder retaliated, knocking out Dunn and starting a fistfight with Phelps, but was subdued.
Phelps proceeded to search the apartment and found a notebook containing a list of names and numbers, including Homicide Detective Floyd Rose. The notebook was likely a payroll and indicating Rose's corruption from taking bribes. Coincidentally, Floyd was one of the detectives initially investigating Peyton's murder. Phelps, however, dropped the lead and phoned in KGPL. Schroeder was imprisoned for murder, however his motive remains unknown.
