Forensic Pathologist Testifies About Shooting Victims
Dr. Vincent DiMaio, a forensic pathologist, testified yesterday that 17-year-old James Brisette was killed by a shotgun blast to the head, and then he was shot an additional three times while laying face-down on the ground on the Danziger Bridge. He said that Brisette was shot at least twice with a shotgun, at least twice with an AK-47 and at least two other times.
DiMaio also told the jury that Ronald Madison, who died on the other side of the bridge, was killed by a shotgun blast to the back, and that the five shooting victims who lived were wounded by four types of weapons: a shotgun, an AK-47, a Glock handgun and a "center-fire rifle" that uses .223-caliber ammunition.
