Notorious BIG autopsy released

Rapper Notorious BIG was shot dead in a 1997 drive-by shooting in Los Angeles

US authorities have released a long-sealed post-mortem report showing that rapper Notorious BIG was shot four times in a 1997 drive-by shooting in Los Angeles which remains unsolved.

The report describes one of the shots as fatal to the Ready To Die star, whose real name was Christopher Wallace.

That shot tore through his left lung, heart and colon.

The killing has been the subject of police and FBI investigations and remains one of Los Angeles' highest-profile unsolved homicides.

Wallace was killed after leaving a music industry event.

Chief Coroner Investigator Craig Harvey said a security hold placed on the autopsy report's release was lifted last week.

There was no reply to a phone message left for a lawyer who represents Wallace's family and widow, Faith Evans, seeking comment.
