When my good friend lived in Southern California, two guys we knew and played baseball with were shot and killed in their home in what police described as a drug hit on the wrong house. Happened in 1989. A guy at one of the factories that we do work with had his brother shot and killed outside a bar in suburban Chicago after an altercation 7 years ago.
Me- and two law enforcement friends.
I caught 5 stray 00 buck pellets on a drug bust gone bad. I had worked with the GBI (GA Bureau of Invest) on an arson case and found a drug ring was involved. I rode with the arrest team but was way behind the action, to the rear of a cruiser. One perp worked his way past the team in the dark and shot at me. The cruiser stopped all but 5 pellets and they swept by my belly sideways. None got deeper than 1", I was treated in the ER and sent home. I was lucky.
Two LE buddies caught rounds in confrontations. Both survived.
