Probably from a weapons transfer. [had fired weapon in waistband or belt] They probably should have said powder residue.

Shoot a handgun, and powder residue will be all over the barrel dust shroud, or cylinder if its a revolver. Tuck it into your waistband (Mexican style carry), and you will transfer the residue to your pants.

IE, the deceased had recently been firing a gun, sounds like he had dumped it just before he was shot.

That's what I thought but you never can tell. I figured if they were talking about residue they would have said residue, so I started to wonder why anyone would carry gunpowder around in the waist of their pants.
