So if two shotgun shells were on the ground, and seven shotgun shells were left in the gun, is a Winchester 1200 capable of holding 9 shells?
And if a red shotgun shell was found on the ground but the shotgun at forensics was found with a green shell, is it common to load a shotgun with two different types of shells at the same time?
In the report below written 12/9/98, Officer Holmes writes:
"I also observed the slide open on a shotgun & a red spent shotgun shell lying beside the w/m."
"There was a shotgun between his legs and there was what appeared to be blood dripping from his mouth and nose. On the swing was a spent shotgun shell, and on the ground waas another, with a box of matches."
Below, in a (3 page total) report written 12/14/98, Corporal John Garner writes his version of the account, beginning at the bottom of page one with regard to the gun, he writes:
"The shotgun between the subjects legs was a Winchester model 1200 12 gauge pump which also belongs to the homeowner. There was one fired shotgun shell on the swing next to the body and one fired shotgun shell on the ground under the swing. Both shotgun shells were later determined to be Winchester Super X #4 shot. The w/m appeared to be in his late teens or early 20's. ALso the action on the shotgun was open."and
"The body was not touched until Dr. Goodin and Kevin Putnam from the Forensics Lab arrived and they handled the body and the shotgun. ....... The shotgun and the two fired rounds were turned over to Kevin Putnam."
Below, instead of describing a red shell casing, Dr. Goodin describes a green shotgun shell:
"The shotgun as between his legs and feet. Huey Mack, Jr. picked up the shotgun to secure it, I noted that the breach was open and one green shell was visible in the magazine."
"there was an unfired 12 gauge shotgun shell in the chamber and six (6) unfired 12 gauge shotgun shells in the magazine tube."
