2021 Conference: Evelyn Kim Presents “Forensic Evaluation of Gunshot Wounds”
If there was a shooting at your school would you know how to preserve evidence? Would you know how to properly document the physical evidence? Evelyn Kim will help you examine close, intermediate, and distant ranges of fire. Depending on the distance a gun is fired will determine the characteristics of each injury. This information is crucial in identifying exactly what happened in a shooting, who was the shooter, how close was the gun, and whether the evidence supports the story.
