Ricochet on the Border

Border agents pursue a group of illegal aliens on foot.

One border agent draws his weapon while chasing them down.

An AD occurs, slightly injuring one of the illegals.

The most confusing thing about it to a reporter:
Haigh said "a fragment" struck the man, but he did not explain how the bullet may have fragmented. Sheriff's Lt. Lee Yoder said the prisoner was hit by a bullet after it ricocheted off another object.{emphasis mine}
This story combines elements of "stupid reporting" and "leave it to the professionals, son" actions by the BP to make for a difficult read before my first cup of coffee.
