How long does it take to heal from a gunshot wound?
If the person recieved a wound to the upper left shoulder and one to the side, close to the ribs.

You really cant pin point this question the most important factor would certainly depend on how severe the gun shots are (the upper shoulder may not take as long to heal but the side injury would) because if vital organs are injured-it certainly could be life threatening--therefore there are so many facets to this question no one answer will help you. I suggest you to define your question in order to get a clear answer for your writings.

Depends on where you were shot, with what calibur, and who shot it (emotional ties)....

have this person reported to the nearest police station yet?

its different for everyone

If you are going into details, then you need a 'script doctor'. If only a generalization though, you can say something like "...and bullets went flying as if from an old Western movie, and only one bystander was hit, who was grazed in the shoulder, and also took another to the ribs about three feet above his sags. The caliber was small, therefore the slugs couldn't bounce around his innards like a shopping card in the Walmart parking lot during their Grand Opening Trailor Trash Sale".

yes it is different for everyone and depends if it hit bones, organs and if it had to be dug out i would say it shouldnt take more then a few months.........also depends on your medical condition, such as diabates make it so infection sets in very fast..........or being an alcoholic thins your blood and makes it harder to heal

its different for everyone.
