According to TV Guide, Cybil Shepard will portray Jolene Castille, a Southern restaurant owner who shoots and kills an unarmed black teenager wearing a hoodie in New York.

Her character is said to justify the action as self-defense.

Leight told EW the episode won’t shy away from tough questions. “Is racial profiling justifiable? Can self-defense involve racial profiling? We’re diving right into that,” he said. “Can that happen in New York? Absolutely.”

“Law & Order: SVU” returns with a two-hour season premiere on Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
