Was A Sheriff's Helicopter Shot Down?

Breaking news here in Sacramento. A County Sheriff's helicopter crashed near Lake Natoma in Folsom. Channel 13 reports that the media has been excluded from the scene and that it is being considered a "crime scene."

According to Channel 10:

Multiple witnesses say the copter was flying low over the Lake Natoma area when popping sounds were heard and flames were spotted shooting from the craft's engines. The copter's tail appeared to break up in mid-air before the craft hit a hillside on the north side of Lake Natoma and rolled down the hill.
