A shooting reconstruction is an evaluation and analysis of the static aftermath of the confluence of a number of dynamic variables, the goal of which is to make an informed assessment as to the sequence of events that took place during the shooting incident. Each variable needs to be evaluated individually, separately and apart from one another.
These variables include the shooter; the target, the weapon, the projectile and the physical environment in which the shooting took place. In addition, all associated investigative case reports, including the offense report, supplemental reports, crime scene reports, crime scene diagrams, crime scene and autopsy photographs and videotapes, witness statements, 911 audio tapes, autopsy, toxicology and laboratory reports should be made available for review should the nature of the investigation into the event necessitates the use of information contained in those documents.
