It’s Been 15 years since Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious BIG aka Biggie aka Big Poppa aka.. (You get the idea!) passed away in a drive by shooting while in LA.
Now TMZ have managed to get their hands on the autopsy report detailing where he was shot and providing more info on how big poppa died.
According to the report, 3 of the shots were NOT fatal.
— Gunshot #1 struck Wallace in the left forearm and travelled 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 report also says that after Gunshot #3 exited the thigh, “the projectile strikes the left side of the scrotum, causing a very shallow, 3/8 inch linear laceration.”
Biggie would have lived if it wasn’t for the fatal bullet number 4 which 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.
According to the report, the bullet perforated Wallace’s colon, liver, heart and the upper lobe of his left lung.
Immediately after the shooting Wallace was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital but was pronounced dead at 1:15 AM.
A toxicology test revealed Wallace had no traces of drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of his death.
TMZ also pointed out that on one of the pages of the autopsy report, there is a note scribbled under the headline “Other Pertinent Information” which reads: “Decedent may be rap singer.” #NoShitSherlock
