This article reports the unusual radiographic findings of 2 cases of a shotgun shooting incident involving the homicide of a plant manager and the subsequent suicide of the assailant. Radiologic examination of wounds produced by the no. 00 copper-plated buckshot used in the incident revealed images with striking similarity to the lead snowstorm appearance generally associated with high-velocity, soft-point rifle bullets.
