An Air Force helicopter operating over Virginia on Monday was reportedly shot at, injuring one member of the crew and prompting an FBI investigation.

The helicopter made an emergency landing in Manasses, Virginia, where the pilot was brought to a hospital. He has since been released.

The UH-1N Huey helicopter, assigned to Joint Base Andrews just outside of Washington, D.C., was conducting a routine training flight roughly 1,000 feet above the ground before it was forced to make an emergency landing, after being struck by a bullet, an Air Force spokesperson told U.S. News.

The helicopter is assigned to the 1st Helicopter Squadron, which supports the movement of the president and other senior government officials to and from Andrews, where Air Force One is also based.
