A lesson in shot placement.
No intention here in starting a caliber war, IMHO it's a somewhat futile discussion, however I believe we can all agree that shot placement is important. Here is a real-life example of a subject being shot at close range 12 times with a 9mm. The twelth shot was an attempted head shot to finish him off. He was laying on the floor after 11 entry wounds, the subject probably made a reactionary move and saved himself from a fatal head shot. He lived and testified at the trial of the shooter.
1. This was all about drugs.
2. I don't know the location of his 11 entry wounds.
3. The guy that was shot was a stocky, stout built man.
A friend of mine who was at the trial related the story to me, I'm posting an excerpt from a news article that matches what my friend told me:
THE NEWS EXCERPT- According to evidence and testimony presented at the trial, Law and co-defendent Jody Hamilton were intent on robbing residents at 1231 Pavie St. They burst into the residence and shot Berryman and Williams, who were manufacturing crack cocaine in the residence, officials said.
Hamilton initially shot Williams 12 times, while Law shot and killed Berryman. Law "then attempted to kill Williams by firing the pistol at his head. The last shot struck Williams in the face, removing his nose," the news release said.
