How can I motion track a single character in a dark shot to appear that the character is getting shot and the blood splatter follows the movement of the character. Thanks!

If you haven't gotten the shot yet, you might be wise to do this as a practical effect.

It's really, Really, REALLY tough to track a character who's moving, twisting and turning in pain, and to deform a static blood splatter to match those movements of the character and the clothing.

Dave's absolutely right, however, if you have to do it in post, this tutorial may help you:
