Mandibular fracture caused by absolute close-range gunshot with a blank cartridge fright weapon

Mandibular fracture caused by absolute close-range gunshot with a blank cartridge fright weapon

Archiv für Kriminologie 208(3-4): 88-95

Bony injuries caused by starter's pistols were repeatedly observed in the form of fractures of the temporal squama and other thin osseous lamellae; in experiments rib fractures could also be produced. In the presented case a contact shot from a blank cartridge pistol caused a fracture of the lower jaw (transverse fracture with a bone fragment split off in reg. 46). The friend of the 17-year-old victim had fired a shot to the right mandibular region during an argument. In the depth of the gunshot entrance wound, which communicated with the oral cavity, intense soot deposits were found as signs of the contact shot.
