*Shooting dynamics analyzes aspects of time, speed and motion in a shooting incident. Some factors are how many shots are fired within a known elapsed time, movement of the shooter relative to projectile trajectory or wounds, the location of discharged cartridge cases and other evidence, speed of vehicle, etc.  The results of shooting dynamics evaluation may provide scientific support toward proving or disproving a version of events put forth by the shooter, witnesses, or the victim of a shooting.
