From what I know the deaths are from the bullets traveling in an arc over longer distances....not straight up in the sky shots.

All bullets are falling. What the fuck do you mean bullets falling can't kill you? Once you get beyond few dozen feet ahead you already have to account for gravity and wind resistance. The lower the angle, the more dangerous a bullet is (assuming ---- is 0, 0-45 degrees is the most dangerous, 45-90 is less so).

Then it obviously matters what the fuck bullet is being fired. The pointier the bullet, the more dangerous it is. Even assuming he shot perfectly upwards, if he did so with a fairly pointed bullet, that could certainly kill someone at 90m/s.

30 Caliber round has a terminal velocity of 90 m/s, only a 61-100 m/s is required for to pierce skin, depending on a few factors. If you can break the skin, then you can, in some scenarios, kill a man.

Here's a few dozen instances of people dying from stray bullets.

Yes and no. A bullet fired vertically cannot realistically reach high enough velocity to kill someone on it's way down. Using F=mv^2 minus some air resistance you can roughly see that a bullet cannot achieve any deadly force.

Now if the bullet is fired at an angle, the bullet will travel in an arch and will most likely maintain aerodynamic stability (bullet spins during trajectory lowering air resistance and increasing speed+stability). We can't simply use 3D mechanics here to roughly estimate the final velocity or impact force since there are too many variables in this situation... but yeah.

We don't what the angle was the the officer shot so we'll never know how the bullet will behave.

Myth busters tested it, they can injure you, and there have been counts of people being killed by bullets that were fired in the air.

You should re-watch the video as Jamie holds his hand under a bullet reaching the maximum velocity and it just bounces off causing no harm.
