ELi5: is it true that if you simultaneously shoot a bullet from a gun, and you take another bullet and drop it from the same height as the gun, that both bullets will hit the ground at the exact same time?

My 8th grade science teacher told us this, but for some reason my class refused to believe her. I’ve always wondered if this is true, and now (several years later) I am ready for an answer.

Edit: Yes, I had difficulties wording my question but I hope you all know what I mean. Also I watched the mythbusters episode on this but I’m still wondering why the bullet shot from the gun hit milliseconds after the dropped bullet.
