Florida teenager Trayvon Martin died from a single gunshot wound to the chest fired from “intermediate range,” according to an autopsy report reviewed Wednesday by NBC News.

The official report, prepared by the medical examiner in Volusia County, Fla., also found that the 17-year-old Martin had one other fresh injury – a small abrasion, no more than a quarter-inch in size – on his left ring finger below the knuckle.

Separately, a medical report on Martin’s alleged killer, 28-year-old George Zimmerman, prepared by his personal physician the day after Martin’s shooting in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26, found that the Neighborhood Watch volunteer suffered a likely broken nose, swelling, two black eyes and cuts to the scalp. That report, first reported Tuesday by ABC News, also was reviewed by NBC News. Advertise | AdChoices

Both documents are part of a mountain of evidence – up to 300 pages and 67 CDs of witness statements, surveillance videos and other material-- expected to be made public soon in connection with the second-degree murder case against Zimmerman.

Zimmerman allegedly shot Martin during a confrontation inside the gated community in Sanford where Zimmerman was a neighborhood volunteer and where Martin was visiting his father’s fiancée.

After first reporting a suspicious person in the neighborhood in a phone call to Sanford police, Zimmerman followed the teenager before a fatal confrontation that remains shrouded in mystery.

Trayvon Martin Killed By Single Gunshot Fired From 'Intermediate Range,' Autopsy Shows

I hate to drag you all away from gun porn and insulting each other but what is this intermediate range? 1 foot? 10 feet? It may make a big difference in the credibility of Z's story.

Intermediate Range Gunshot

An intermediate range gunshot usually will deposit a significant amount of particulate residue that is not easily seen with the eye but can be detected through a microscopic examination and through chemical testing. The results may read something like:

Exhibit 1 (shirt) was found to have a bullet entrance hole in the chest area.  A deposit of gunshot residues were found around this hole that are consistent with those that would be deposited by an intermediate range gunshot.

An intermediate range gunshot, like that seen in the above image, can range from just beyond the 12-inch range out to 24 to 36 inches. This depends greatly upon the caliber, barrel length and powder type used in the ammunition.


When no residues are found around a bullet hole, it can mean several things.

  1. The firearm was at a distance far enough away that the residues did not reach the garment.

  2. An intervening object between the firearm and garment preventing the residues from reaching the garment.

  3. Gunshot residues were removed through severe handling, heavy bleeding, or by some other means.

Since a shooting by Z can fall in the range of 15 inches, it seems that nothing in this report impeaches any portion of Z's account of a self-defense shooting.

Notice how libmedia never bothers to mention this little fact as they continue to peddle their "white Hispanic stalker" meme.

Whiter than Elizabeth Warren?     : )

Z's grandmother who virtually raised him was half-black and Peruvian. He's a hundred times more black and a hundred times more Hispanic than the Harvard Squaw is a Cherokee.

Thanks for the reply though. I posted this in Breaking at LP and didn't get any reply at all. Apparently, I am the only person who didn't previously know the technical meaning of "intermediate range" gunshots or something. I thought it was rather interesting but I'm usually wrong about these things.

I was guessing that "intermediate" was something beyond arms reach, 5 or 6 feet at least, so I found it informative.
