Abstract

Autopsy cases of deaths from handgun wounds were studied. Survival times were estimated from time of the incident until the time of pronouncement on police reports. Two groups were apparent--short-term and non-short-term survivors. These groups were compared statistically with respect to age, race, sex, Spanish surname, alcohol, drugs detected at autopsy, caliber of projectile, frequency of shots, and location of injury.
