The Notorious B.I.G. (real name Christopher Wallace) sustained four gunshot wounds the night he was murdered in L.A. back in 1997, according to a just-released autopsy report.

Wallace, who was listed at 6'1" and 395 lbs., was struck a total of four times in a drive-by shooting by a still-unknown assailant on Los Angeles' Wilshire Blvd.

He was only 24.

As he sat in the passenger seat of a Chevy Suburban, Biggie was ambushed by bullets from the car alongside him. The first three, it turns out, were not fatal:

  1. Struck Wallace in the left forearm and traveled down to his wrist.
  2. Struck Wallace in the back, missed all vital organs, and exited through his left shoulder.
  3. Struck Wallace on his outer left thigh and exited through his inner left thigh.

After the third bullet exited the thigh, the autopsy report states that "the projectile strikes the left side of the scrotum, causing a very shallow, 3/8 inch linear laceration."

The fatal bullet was the fourth and final gunshot.

That entered Wallace's body through his right hip and tore its way through several of his vital organs before finally coming to rest in his left shoulder area.

The bullet perforated Wallace's colon, liver, heart and left lung.

Immediately after the shooting, the Notorious B.I.G. was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital, where doctors performed an emergency thoracotomy to no avail.

Wallace was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

All four gunshots traveled through the Suburban passenger door before striking Wallace; two were found on the gurney that transported him to the hospital.

Another bullet was discovered at the hospital when the body of the deceased rapper was turned over after doctors had tried and failed to save him.

The coroner listed Wallace as "morbidly obese."

A toxicology test revealed Wallace had no traces of drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of his death; Wallace's body was later ID'd by his mother and wife.

The autopsy report also lists one interesting, handwritten note under the section "Other Pertinent Information", reading: "Decedent may be rap singer."

Please, Please Help us! In the February 14,2013 Wayne County Newspaper,( Front Page) It tells of the school violations and bullying and harassment my children have suffered in the WCSD,Mississippi. But, it did not mention that the latest of those threats were from the school KKK note. Now, this same girl where two knifes were found on her is back at school and sitting behind my child on their bus. This is not the first racial discrimination . My kids have a right to a safe school environment. The WCSD said they would handle it and they would prosecute and she would not be back on that campus. They would not tell me one court date no notification, just it's been handled. 911 did not even send an officer at my request the day of. The children are shocked and scared. I beg for justice. I do not know why help for justice is so hard. They are not going back to school until they are represented. This is sad that anyone would think we are okay with this.
