After 15 years, The Notorious B.I.G.’s autopsy report has finally been released. Read more on it below.
Christopher Wallace,Â was killed in aÂ drive-by shooting on Wilshire BoulevardÂ in Los AngelesÂ on March 9, 1997 at the age of 24.Â He suffered fourÂ 9Â mmÂ gunshot wounds while riding in the passenger seat of a GMC Suburban driven byÂ Gregory “G-Money” Young.Â Only oneÂ of these woundsÂ were fatal.Â
The non-fatal bullets struck WallaceÂ in the forearm, left shoulderÂ and left thigh.Â
The fatal bullet struck himÂ in the hip and bore through his liver, colon, heart and left lung, finally becoming lodged in his left shoulder. He was rushed toÂ Cedars-Sinai hospital,Â but was pronounced dead at 1:15 AM.Â
A toxicology report at the time of his death revealed noÂ traces of drugs or alcohol in his system.
Wallace’s murder remains a mystery to this day, with no charges laid in the long sinceÂ abandonedÂ investigation. There is speculation that it was ordered by Suge KnightÂ as a retaliation for the similarÂ murder of rival rapperÂ Tupac Shakur six months earlier.
