I promise you that pilot was doing everything he could not strike an apartment,” PC Acevedo said. He said that the fact no one injured on the ground was a ‘miracle’. He continues the helicopter landed in an apartment complex, but somehow the pilot avoided all residential buildings and only clipped the clubhouse as it fell to the ground.
Acevedo said three suspects had taken into custody. The shots fired, and the crash appears to be unrelated, officials said.
