To stray is to deviate from the direct course. When a bullet strays from its course it can hit anyone who is in its unintended path.

As Ansumane Kanneh was fixing his seven year old granddaughter’s bike, this stray bullet hit him. This stray bullet killed Ansumane. Ansumane Kanneh was 82 years old.
