English term or phrase:covered in powder residue
To make it look like suicide or robbery, he then takes the mans belongings, wipes his own prints off the gun and puts it in the victim's hand. This was **covered in powder residue**, as he had tried to prevent the weapon from going off. The gang leader decides not to fire again so that no one will think it is a revenge killing.
Auf der Hand befanden sich Schmauchspuren?
Ist powder residue dasselbe wie "powder burns"?
