What a close call.

A Border Patrol Agent is being credited for running into Robb Elementary School this week while an 18-year-old, who was armed with AR-15, was shooting kids and teachers.

The agent was able to take down the shooter and put an end to the massacre, but he did not come out unscathed.

Photos on social media show that a bullet grazed the agent's head, tearing his cap, and cutting the scalp of the agent.
