I know it's getting old but

Was Trayvon shot in the chest? Hubby said he was shot in the side and it somehow came out the chest- but from what I can find it looks like he was shot in the chest. And when they talk about it they always say chest so...

I just wonder why that is...I mean he couldn't aim for a leg, arm or something OTHER than the chest?

  • Have you ever shot a gun? Even if it is a laser gun. It is very hard to shoot someone in an arm or a leg unless you are a marksman. You are always told to aim for the chest because the likelihood of hitting flesh is greater.

    In what position was he when the gun was fired?
    That also determines where you can aim the gun.

  • Frankly, I don't know why it matters. The kid is dead.

  • Yes, it was the chest. From what I heard in the trial Trayvon was on top of Zimmerman when he shot the gun. I think it would be pretty hard to aim for an arm or leg in those circumstances.
