Bullets Crossing Borders

Woman in Texas struck by a bullet from Mexico.

Call it karma, bad luck or just being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The bullet traveled over a mile before she was hit. Luckily she was not seriously injured.

Note to El Paso residents; get bulletproof vests!

EL PASO, Texas, Feb 21 (Reuters) - A woman pushing her child in a stroller in downtown El Paso, Texas, was struck by an assault rifle bullet fired from across the border in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, on Tuesday, mayor John Cook said.

After Juarez police responded to a carjacking about half a mile from the border, a gunfight broke out between police and the carjackers, Cook said. A bullet -- a type used in assault weapons such as M16s -- penetrated and exited the woman's calf, he said.

The unidentified woman, 48, who was shopping, was treated at a hospital and released with minor injuries, and her child -- whose age Cook did not know -- was not hurt, he said. The mother, a Mexican citizen, is a legal U.S. resident living in El Paso, Cook said.
