The meat bullet fragmented on contact with the skin, causing only superficial damage.
An assassin can use a gelatin bullet to kill someone without leaving a trace.
The bullet did not cause fatal injury.
An assassin can use a poison capsule fired from an umbrella to kill someone without leaving a trace.
