Federal officials are investigating after a U.S. Air Force helicopter on a routine training mission was shot at in Virginia on Monday, causing an injury to one of the craft’s crew members. 

An Air Force UH-1N Huey helicopter was conducting a routine training mission when it was struck by a bullet a little before 1 p.m. Monday, an Air Force official not authorized to speak publicly said.

The helicopter was about 1,000 feet above ground and heading for the Manassas Regional Airport and the shot was fired near Middleburg, Va, the official added. 

FBI agents were dispatched to the Manassas Regional Airport after the bureau received reports that the helicopter was shot from the ground, the FBI Washington Field Office (WFO) said in a statement to USA TODAY.

The person who was injured suffered a “non-threatening injury, for which he was treated and subsequently released from the hospital,” according to the bureau.  

“WFO is working jointly with our law enforcement partners, including the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident,” the field office said in a statement. 

The incident was first reported by McClatchy.

A Joint Base Andrews spokesperson confirmed the helicopter is assigned to the base’s 1st Helicopter Squadron and added “initial findings are that the helicopter was struck by a bullet resulting in a minor injury to an aircrew member and damage to the aircraft.”

“The FBI asks that anyone near this area at the time of the incident who may have information please call the FBI at 202-278-2000,” the FBI Washington Field Office said in a statement.

One day into new mask law, one man is dead and another injured over a dispute in a Michigan store – CNN

(CNN)A customer at a Quality Dairy in Eaton County, Michigan, was shot dead by police after stabbing a male customer in a dispute over not wearing a face mask, a day after a new mask law took effect.

A 43-year-old man walked into the store not wearing a mask and was confronted by a 77-year-old customer for not wearing a face mask, according to a Michigan State Police statement.
Both men left the store and got into an argument in the parking lot. It was then that the suspect stabbed the older customer and fled in a car.
He was later spotted on the road and stopped by a deputy with the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office. The suspect got out of the car and approached the deputy with a knife.
“The deputy attempted to increase distance by backing up and subsequently shot and injured the suspect,” police said.
The suspect was transported to a local hospital where he later died. The injured 77-year-old is alive but has been hospitalized. The deputy was not injured, state police said.
Both incidents remain under investigation by the Michigan State Police, the statement concluded.

Michigan residents are required to wear masks

On Monday, an executive order from the governor went into effect requiring Michigan residents to wear face masks indoors and in crowded outdoor.
This is the second order from the governor requiring masks since the pandemic began, and now businesses must refuse entry and service to customers who fail to comply with wearing a mask.
If not, customers could face a misdemeanor charge and a $500 fine. Any business that does not comply could have their license temporarily suspended.
The mandate does exclude those who medically cannot wear a mask.
