Amazing shot cited as self-defenseThe police bullet did not travel up the barrel of the gunman’s revolver. That’s what I first thought when I saw this. It went in on the side. Still completely amazing.

Police bullet lodged in gunman’s weapon. A highly improbable shot left an officer’s bullet in the cylinder of a gunman’s revolver, and police say it’s a pretty clear sign that the officers who shot the man faced a deadly threat. “Physically, it is impossible to conclude anything other than the fact the suspect was pointing directly at the officers,” Deputy Chief Clark Kimerer said Wednesday, adding, “I’ve not seen anything quite like that in my 24 years.” – seattle
