The doctor initially states that Delko was hit by a "mastoid shot". Later, he tells Calleigh that Delko suffered damage to his "temporal lobe". The only way a shot to the area of the mastoid bone (which is behind the ear) can result in damage to the temporal lobe of the brain is if it is shot from below in an upward direction, or if the victim has his head tilted back when hit.
