You need to discuss this with your attorney as they know your case best. The target was acquired, aimed at and the bullet is already fired so there is really no point now asking a question if it will hit the target or not.
Basically you need 3 evidence out of 6 to qualify under exceptional ability. If you are keen on some details, below is the USCIS policy manual.
