Hello, my name is Jon and I'm a researcher for several television shows including CSI, CSI: Miami, Bones and a show on TNT called Rizzoli & Isles. It's my job to make sure our show is as accurate as possible. Contributors to this forum have been kind enough to help us in the past and I'm helping you can do so again.

While we often have a ballistics expert help determine the path a bullet took. we want to bring in a mathematician in this scene to use some formula to make the same determination. We have the bullet impact on a statue so we know the angle of impact. What other factors would you need and what formula would you use to help determine where the shooter was located?

Perhaps this isn't possible as there are many variables, but anything you can tell us would truly be appreciated.

Many thanks

Jon
