JFK killed by friendly fire

saw a special the other night where to me, a plausible case was made that while Oswald did indeed fire upon and hit the president and the governor, the killing shot came the automatic rifle held by a secret service agent in the car immediately behind the presidents limo.
the scenario offered was that Connolly was sitting in a jump seat, putting him inboard and inline of JFK.
the first bullet fired by Oswald hit short in the street behind the presidents car, but ricochets hitting the president in the back of the head, which Connolly claimed he heard the president yell out omg i'm hit.
several spectators were hit in the face by debris from this shot but their statements were never taken into the record.
the second shot from Oswald pierced the president through the upper back, and exited into Connolly's right wrist that would have been inline.
the agent traveling directly behind the president upon hearing the first shot turned and spotted the rifle in the sixth story window and instinctively pulled up his rifle, switching off the safety at the same time.
as the gun was brought up, and following the second shot that hit JFK, the car lurched causing the agent to discharge the rifle.
the bullet, entering at a low angle entered the back of the presidents head taking off the top of his skull.
the bullets Oswald shot were military issue, full metal jacket and of a larger caliber than the entrance hole in the skull. they would make a clean hole in and out.
the soft-nosed bullet from the agents rifle is a smaller caliber, matched the hole in the skull and would explode and fragment on impact.
a security officer said he smelled cordite (gun powder)at the street level after the third and final shot. his statement was never taken either.
in essence there was a cover-up, but the conspiracy was that the president was accidentally killed by a member his own security team.
everyone has their own belief on the event, and this one to me at least seems the most likely.
it was still a shame regardless.
