Multiple gunshot wounds

Multiple gunshot wounds normally are a homicide. And this was in another drug infested area.

Isn't "fatally wounded" kinda

Isn't "fatally wounded" kinda like "a dead body"? "Get your journalism degree online with no money down!"

Fatally wounded is ok. I

Fatally wounded is ok. I personally like "shot dead" which always makes me pause but is actually correct.

"Kill crazzzzzy. People are filled with evil these days. " That, from the person who stockpiles weapons and ammunition. Wow.

Jerry Atrick, Have you

Jerry Atrick, Have you considered the possibility that the victim wasnt dead but badly or "fatally" wounded and yes, still alive when he was found?

If he was fatally wounded

If he was fatally wounded when he was found, he wasn't alive.

What does it matter if

What does it matter if someone stockpiles guns and ammo, ever heard of a collector? Doesn't mean everyone who has guns is a evil killer.
