I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'piece of news' is the definition.
'bulletin' can be an answer for 'news' (bulletin is a kind of news). I am not sure about the 'piece of' bit.

'shooting victim may have' is the wordplay.

'the' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?
