Man Shoots at KWTV Chopper During Police Standoff

A man fired a shot at the KWTV helicopter during a police standoff Friday, the Oklahoma City CBS affiliate reports. Jim Gardner, the pilot for KWTV’s chopper, was covering ongoing negotiations between the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office and Troy Shackelford, who was feared to be suicidal:

Authorities set up their command center at the Hilltop Baptist Church. After a few hours of negotiations, authorities were able to bring the situation to a safe conclusion.

On Monday, the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office reported that Shackelford actually fired a shot at our chopper. No one was hurt.

The Sheriff’s office will pursue federal charges against Shackelford, according to KWTV.
