    Bleeding out = hypovolemic shock.

    "Shock" is a state where the vital organs are receiving an insufficient supply of oxygenated, nutrient carrying blood. There are several types of shock, named for their underlying cause.

    HMM...
    The femoral and popliteal are the same artery, only changes name in the knee area. It is resilient because of the area. also have the medial and lateral genicular arteries that branch off this artery, and if they were also damaged, you could lose high amounts of blood, because with a GSW to the knee, it may be impossible to flex the knee to help compress and control bleeding. Either way, a very unfortunate accident, and probably something a tourniquet may have helped save a life and lose a leg. but not being there, too many variables to say.
