The defense called a crime lab deputy, Madelyn Collins, to testify about gunshot residue. She said gunshot residue was found on Will Smith's hands, explaining it could possibly come from firing a gun, being near a gun when it's discharged or touching a gun that had been discharged. The state had her specify that she found only two particles on the back of each hand, one on the left palm and none on the right palm -- and that it's possible residue could come from a gun being fired into his vehicle. The defense has been hinting at the possibility that Smith may have held or fired a gun that was removed or moved at the scene.
