    Of your 3 examples as posted, I'll go with #2. But I would like #3 also if you insert "that" after "reported". Or a #4, "He reported to have been shot in the hand."

    Is it possible to leave "of" out in the first one? Would there be a difference in the meanind?

    Yes, it would be better to delete "of".
