Roughly 15 years after Notorious B.I.G. was murdered during a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles, his autopsy has been revealed showing shocking details into the shooting which left the rapper dead.
TMZ revealed the gruesome details behind the shooting, revealing that the 6’1” B.I.G, whose real name was Christopher Wallace, was shot four times. Three of the shots missed vital organs and are noted as non-fatal shots.
One of the shots entered through Wallace’s left forearm and traveled to his wrist. The second shot entered his back and managed to miss all of his vital organs ending in his left shoulder, the third bullet entered through his left thigh and exited through the other side. The report reads that "the projectile strikes the left side of the scrotum, causing a very shallow, 3/8 inch linear laceration."
The fatal shot, reportedly was the fourth bullet which entered through the right hip and on its path shot through several vital organs. The bullet was found in his left shoulder.
In 2001, Clayton Hill, a member of the Nation of Islam, came forward telling HipHopDX that he was an accessory to the murder of the late rapper. He is currently being held in a Chicago federal prison.
