About fifteen years ago I was involved in a murder investigation. The killer used a plastic bottle to suppress the sound of the gunshots. He shot the victim three times in the back as he was working on his computer. However the victim didn't die immediately. He called 9-11 and gave dispatch the name of his killer. He also told the responding officers, the paramedics. the doctors and nurses in the emergency room. Deathbed statements are admissible in court. The shooter owed him money for drugs. He tried to deny it, but we had his prints on the bottle and empty casings that we matched to his pistol. He later plead guilty and went to prison for 1st degree murder. However the improvised suppresser really did work. Probably helped that it was a 22 LR pistol. He learned about improvised suppressors from the Internet. I'm not kidding.
