Sounds like a "falling bullet" fallacy to me.  Was the "kid" next door?

Falling bullets fall, at not more than ~300 fps - that's red rider bb gun @
20 ft velocities, or nearly super whammo sling shot velocities, for a .30
cal 150 gr. bullet @ ~5 ft.

Was this person hit by an errant bullet, that "fell" through a window?

Sounds like a good reason to divest from glass, and invest in Lexan
(kevlar, spectra, etc.)
