EL PASO, Texas – The first bullets struck El Paso's city hall at the end of a work day. The next ones hit a university building and closed a major highway. Shootouts in the drug war along the U.S.-Mexico border are sending bullets whizzing across the Rio Grande into one of the nation's safest cities, where authorities worry it's only a matter of time before someone gets hurt or killed.
Until now, communities on the U.S. side of the border have been largely shielded from the violence raging just across the river. But the recent incidents are the first time that live ammunition has landed in American territory.

We all know whats going on in Mexico. The article says 8 bullets have been fired into El Paso in the last few weeks. I dont remember seeing anything about the first, second, third...., seventh bullet being fired, but I guess 8 is the right number finally?
