Keep in mind that most guns "fired in the air" are not fired at 90 degrees to the ground, but at some angle, which means the bullet is traveling in a parabolic arc.

And depending on distance, coming down from that arc can indeed still be a bullet at lethal velocities, especially a pointed, more aerodynamic rifle bullet.
