In injuries caused due to firearms, the appearance of the wound has immense medicolegal implication since it can determine the type of projectile, its trajectory, and range of firing. Such observations can also assist in determining the manner of death. Herein, we report a case of homicidal gunshot injury caused by a smoothbore firearm. The characteristics of distant-range shotgun injury are presented. The need for appropriate forensic evaluation, documentation of injuries, and proper handling of evidentiary material in the clinical settings is highlighted.
