"And what perception is that?" Sweasy asked.

"The perception of my having to answer your questions here today," he said.

"I believe it can, yes," Olson said.

Joseph Coiro, who worked for a Pittsburgh-based company contracted by the BCA, also testified that gunshot residue was found on the squad's driver's side ceiling, interior driver's side door and driver's side dashboard.


Coiro said it was also found on the front of Damond's shirt and sleeves; Harrity's shirt, vest and pants; and Noor's pants.
