    • Cause that's how doctors say it. IKR> Using fancy words just to say he died from a gunshot wound.

      • They are not just fancy words. They are actually a more specific way of describing what caused death. A gunshot wound doesn't always kill, does it? It is the degree of injury that it causes to a particular area and the what happens as a result of that injury that may result in death. In this case, hemorrhagic shock which is secondary to the gunshot injury that was received. Knowing such details is critical especially in determining whether a case is a homicide or not when conducting investigations.

    • it is secondary cuz the primary cause of death is the gunshot wound.. u dont die rite awy frm gun shot wounds.. u bleed out some times first unless u get a direct shot to the head point blank range.

      so in essence primary comes first then secondary.. dats how the system wrks. u cant go to school if it aint primary first.
