An accident? Really?

The following is in the news today:

“CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The FBI is investigating a bullet hole found in a US Airways jet’s fuselage. The hole was detected by a pilot during a pre-flight inspection. Law enforcement officials said a .40-caliber bullet penetrated the skin of the plane and was found inside, NBC News has learned. However, from the trajectory of the round, officials think it entered the plane from above. Investigators assume the incident was accidental.”

As a frequent flyer, I have to ask: Who is shooting at a 737 from above? And how is it possibly accidental?
