    Abstract

    The examination of gunshot residues in a forensic science laboratory should be a series of integrated procedures. The Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences includes both the Office of the Medical Examiner and the Criminal Investigation Laboratory. Accordingly, a unique opportunity for comprehensive and coordinated examination of gunshot residues presents itself. This paper deals with those aspects involving items of clothing and deposits which may be present on the hand; the pathological evidence is not covered.
