Can you be conscious after bullet to the head?

My sister committed suicide a few months ago. She placed a 9mm in her mouth. I was just curious if there was a chance of her still being aware after she pulled the trigger.

    Many people are. One person got shot in the head and famously walked around for years without ever realizing what happened until he got an MRI.

    It's unlikely though. The amount of force that even a 9mm delivers would be sufficient to knock a person out at point blank. She may have had some awareness if anything but she probably would not have been in pain.

    Sorry to hear that and I don't think so

    It’s instant death so I doubt she would be conscious of anything.

  • Did she die? My guess is that it’s pretty quick
