'1 in a billion' police shooting: Cop's bullet jams suspect's gun


If a jury in Colorado ever is asked to decide whether Jahlil Meshesha was pointing his gun at off-duty Jefferson County Deputy Sheriff Jose Ramon Marquez in an apparent attempted robbery last winter, they just need to look at a photograph of his weapon.
The photo shows Marquez’s bullet, which he fired at Meshesha while he was being fired on, inside Meshesha’s gun. Marquez’s .45 caliber shot had hit Meshesha’s gun exactly in the barrel opening and traveled down the barrel, jamming the assailant’s .40 caliber weapon completely. -- World NewsDaily

Your Say

I''m interested in finding out how a .45 caliber bullet traveled down a .40 caliber barrel. But regardless, good shot, Deputy Marquez.

Good comment waltj, but I tend to believe he made a lousy shot and failed to hit his target.

Lead is soft compared to steel. That's how.
