In some interesting news this morning, TMZ obtained a copy of the previously never public autopsy report for the late Notorious B.I.G. His murder 15 years ago in Los Angeles remains unsolved.
The report, listed and seen below, details the four bullet wounds, and the one that ultimately caused his passing.
Kind of glum to read today, but it is interesting to get a clear picture of the driveby shooting.
The report states that 24 year old Wallace was shot 4 times while riding in the passenger seat of a Chevy Suburban on on Wilshire Blvd. According to the report, 3 of the 4 shots were not fatal.
Gunshot #1 – struck Wallace in the left forearm and traveled down to his wrist.
Gunshot #2 – struck Wallace in the back, missed all vital organs, and exited through his left shoulder.
Gunshot #3 – struck Wallace on his outer left thigh and exited through his inner left thigh. The the projectile then struck the left side of the scrotum, causing a very shallow, 3/8 inch linear laceration.
Gunshot #4 – entered Wallace’s body through his right hip and ripped its way through several vital organs before coming to rest in his left shoulder area.
Gunshot #4 was the fatal bullet. According to the report, the bullet perforated Wallace’s colon, liver, heart and the upper lobe of his left lung. Wallace was then rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital and pronounced dead at 1:15 AM.
