D. Location Of The Shell Casing.

  1. Officer Gonzales shot Bell with a Smith and Wesson Model 4096, and this was the only weapon fired on November 9, 2004.
  2. This weapon ejects spent shell casings to the right side.
  3. The spent shell casing from the bullet that went through Michael’s head was found in a grassy area to the north of the car.
  4. This area is to the left side of where Officer Gonzales’ claimed he was standing.
  5. The only way the shell casing could have ejected to the left is if Gonzales reached around Bell’s head, pointed the gun back in Officer Gonzales’ direction, and pulled the trigger, which Officer Gonzales did not do because he would be firing the gun at himself.
