Albuquerque Police Make Arrests in KOAT Chopper Shooting

koat chopperAlbuquerque police have arrested two men for shooting at the KOAT helicopter and satellite truck. Joshua Sullivan, 23, and Robert Rand, 24, “plotted and executed a plan to shoot up Sky 7 last week,” according to the Albuquerque ABC affiliate.

A KOAT photographer was able to get video of the suspects’ car as they fled the scene after the shooting. Last week, police apprehended a shoplifting suspect in the same car, finding shotgun shells that matched those found at KOAT. The men have admitted to both shootings, according to the station’s report on the arrest.

“The community support for Sky 7 and trying to find who did this has been great. Now, I just hope the DA’s office can effectively and quickly prosecute these guys,” KOAT general manager Mary Lynn Roper said. [h/t NewsBlues]
