How did it move to the heart if it didn't get inside the heart chamber? It sounds as if it slightly penetrated the heart wall, but that contradicts the statement that it moved.

Might be better if it where. Not much to hurt in there. If it's stuck in a vessel supplying the heart muscle itself, that would not be so good, and it would cause a classic "heart attack", although in the classic case it's a blood clot or piece of arterial plaque that blocks the vessel, not a #8 lead shot.
