District court's denial of plaintiff's petition for habeas relief is affirmed where: 1) plaintiff's argument that his counsel was ineffective for failing to introduce the results of the gunshot residue test is forfeited as the argument was not presented in district court; and 2) plaintiff failed to show he suffered prejudice as a result of counsel's errors on his other claims, and that there was a reasonable probability that but for counsel's unprofessional errors the result of the proceeding would have been different.
