    Abstract

    The differentiation of tandem bullets fired simultaneously versus multiple bullets fired separately entering through a single entrance wound may present difficulty in wound interpretation for the forensic pathologist. The authors present a case report of three separate projectiles entering through a single perforation. The differentiation of projectiles fired in tandem and multiple single projectiles is discussed.
