When a high velocity bullet is fired and the bullet hits a hard substance and splits can the splinters travel back to the place of origin?

The splinters can travel back if it is a close range fire. In this case the ricochet can harm the gunman.
Yes they can. Imagine throwing a golf ball at a solid wall. It will bounce straight back at you. Bullets, and pieces of bullets can do just the same thing.
