Shooting Reconstruction: 4 Elements of Trajectory
A key part of any shooting incident reconstruction is the determination of a projectile’s trajectory through items at the scene. The path of a bullet hole has 4 main elements that require measurement, estimation, or other determination where possible. Variables often relate to the material struck and to a lesser extent the type of projectile. These four elements will be discussed independently and then assessed as a group in examples and case studies.
