Immediately after the shooting Wallace was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital — where doctors performed an emergency thoracotomy … but it was too late. Wallace was pronounced dead at 1:15 AM.
According to the report, all 4 of the gunshots traveled through the Suburban passenger door before striking Wallace. Two of the bullets were found on the gurney that transported Wallace to the hospital. Another bullet was discovered at the hospital when the body was turned over after doctors had pronounced him dead.
During the autopsy, the coroner listed Wallace as “morbidly obese.” A toxicology test revealed Wallace had no traces of drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of his death.
Wallace’s body was eventually ID’d by his mother and wife.
One last thing … on one of the pages of the autopsy report, there is a note scribbled under the headline “Other Pertinent Information” which reads: “Decedent may be rap singer.”
Rest in peace Baby bay-bay!
