Police Helicopter Shot Down

Sheriff says department helicopter was shot down

Wednesday, August 10, 2005; Posted: 7:21 a.m. EDT (11:21 GMT)

(CNN) -- A Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department helicopter that crashed Saturday in the yard of an Albuquerque home was brought down by a bullet, Sheriff Darren White said late Tuesday.

At a news conference in New Mexico, White showed pictures of where a bullet penetrated the windshield of the aircraft, known as Metro One, and shattered on a pedal the pilot uses to fly the helicopter.

The inside of the cockpit tested positive for lead fragments, according to forensic tests, and pilot Chris Holland and Deputy Ward Pfefferle suffered shrapnel wounds.

White did not specifically explain how the bullet brought Metro One down Saturday night.

"We intend to use every resource available to track down the coward who is responsible for this sick and twisted act," said White, who credited the experience of the crew for avoiding loss of life.

An incredulous White promised to find the person who opened fire on the helicopter.

"How could someone walk out in the middle of the night and take a gun and fire at a helicopter that's out there trying to protect the public?" he said. "It's a miracle they're alive."

The FBI and Albuquerque police are assisting in the investigation.

Authorities have set up a tip line at 505-980-2496 and also urged anyone with information to call CrimeStoppers at 505-843-STOP.

Can't say I feel to bad for these guys.  Police and National guard helicopters patrol my area for pot plants by infrared, and woke me up at 2 a.m. the other morning, hovering at about 200 feet in my backyard.  Not only was it really scary, but totally disrespectful as well.  No privacy for me = no sympathy.

Good story, thanks.  :thumbup:

I just picture some dude, playing to much GTA, with the crazy question of could I really shoot down a helicopter with a gun? I feel kinda bad for the guys, but not really at all since no one was killed.

Well, this is the proof heaven and hell are here on earth. The helicopter is a fallen angel and the shooter is god.

That would probably be a tough shot, depending on how high up the chopper is.

on the evening news that day it showed that the shot came through the floorboard, through the control pedal, and out the window... with no control pedal, the helicoptor couldn't fly, so it cam down... a lucky shot fer sure...

i wonder what the person who shot at it was thinking. Of course they didnt think it would bring the chopper down but damn they probably had nothing to lose if they were shooting at it, running through their heads as its going down is wow, didn't think that would happen
