For my story, basically the MC, who is a cop, sees a man being murdered while surveying a gang. He tries to intervene and stop it, but he's too late, and the man is dead. The villains, seeing that a cop is trying to stop them, bring their van around, and load the dead body into it, while they are shooting at the cop, who is shooting back, while both parties are taking cover, and trading fire. The gang drives off with the body, and the third act is based around finding the body to be used as evidence, and the consequences that come out of that. However, I was told this was a plot hole, and that no gang would take a dead body with them while trying to escape a police officer, trying to stop them. The cop would have called for back up, road blocks would be made, and the villains will just get caught with the dead body at a road block, and therefore taking the body with them is redundant, I was told. But is this a plot hole really? For example, in a lot of fictional stories, a group of crooks may for example, commit armed robbery... when the police are called, the crooks still drive away, with their guns, even though they could be caught with their guns at a road block, and the guns will be used as evidence against them. So even if they don't take the dead body with them, if they are caught with their guns, the chances of them being linked to a left behind dead body is just as likely, so shouldn't you just try to take it with you, in case you happen to escape, as oppose to being caught, and linked to a left behind dead body? Or is this a plot hole, and is their any way I can write it so that the dead body can be taken by them for the last third to work out this way?
