Sheriffs Helicopter Shot Down

The Bernalillo County (New Mexico) Sheriff’s Department Helicopter crashed this week on the west side of town, a few miles from where I live. It’s now being reported (with pics) that the helicopter was shot down

The sheriff’s helicopter was scouring Paradise Hills late Friday night and into Saturday morning when the pilot heard a loud pop and his chopper started to vibrate.

That’s pretty scary, what kind of gun could bring down a helicopter? I almost imagine that some punk kids or drunks were messing with some guns and shot it down by accident, not thinking that they would come close to it.
