Bullets Dropping From The Sky
In Memphis, Tennessee, a 9-year-old child was hit in the head with a bullet during  a 4th-of-July party at Tom Lee Park.  Police said a bullet from a high powered rifle hit the child’s head, and then struck a 33 year-old woman before landing on the blanket.  The round did not pierce the skin of either, likely because it had lost its velocity and was free-falling from the sky – but I’m sure it hurt non the less.
