People have been sitting in their house and were hit and killed by a bullet that seemed to come out of nowhere.

It came from somewhere.

Almost happened to my dad decades ago. He was in the farmhouse kitchen talking to his mother when a rifle round came through the window and struck the bricks of the fireplace between them. Some fool hunter/farmer not making sure (or caring) where his round/bullet will go if his shot misses. >.<

The problem here is that he was not in LA. Had he been in Los Angeles he would have known what happened.

A US study found that 118 people were treated for random "falling-bullet injuries" at one Los Angeles medical centre between 1985 and 1992, resulting in the deaths of 38.

On July 4, 1999, 9-year-old Brian Perez was hit in the head by a stray bullet. He died of his injuries the next day. At the time of Perez's death, he was the 39th person to be killed by a stray bullet on a holiday in L.A.

When I was a kid there was a boy that thought someone had thrown a rock at him and hit him in the head. He had a knot on his head but nobody thought a lot about it. A month or so later his Mom took him to a doc when the knot never went away. He lanced it and pulled out a 22 lr slug.

Nobody heard a shot and it was assumed that a hunter far back in the woods behind the school missed a shot at a squirrel and it just came down in the schoolyard with just enough power to get under the skin on his head but not damage his skull at all.

I heard of someone that got a wound in the shoulder on New Years' night probably from someone

Just name your rifles nowhere and somewhere. That should get anyone out of any legal trouble right? But in all seriousness thankfully it wasn’t fatal or hit his kids.

Heard that kind of story before, a pregnant mother fell bleeding on her balcony.

her husband in the main room saw her and brought her to emergency, he had'nt heard a sound

When admitted to emergency, the doctor found that indeed it was a gun wound, but when they made a xray of the mother womb they found something very strange.

The baby had the bullet in him, with no wounds...in fact he had swallowed it during a normal reflex of deglutition...it appears that the bullet was at the end of its course and had just enough velocity to go through the mother.
