By now, you’ve likely seen the news article from a couple weeks ago. An armed robber shot a compliant victim in the face. The bullet ricocheted off the victim’s skull and hit the second robber, killing him. Read about it HERE.
It may seem strange, but it happens all the time. Bullets sometimes do weird things when they hit the skull. Most of the time they penetrate, but sometimes they bounce off or get deflected. A quick Google search found these recent incidents:
