Albuquerque ABC affiliate KOAT says a man in a gold Nissan Maxima opened fire at the station’s helicopter last week. The chopper is currently disabled and estimated to have more than $100,000 worth of damage.

The gunman is believed to have also shot at a KOAT satellite truck, which was parked nearby, according to the Albuquerque Journal. Police say they have a “very strong” lead in the case.

“We appreciate the efforts of APD to find who is responsible for this,” KOAT president and general manager Mary Lynn Roper said in a statement. “Sky 7 is a tool we use to serve the public interest. It has saved individuals and gives officials a bird’s eye view when residents, communities or pueblos are in trouble.”
