An LA police department helicopter took heavy fire from a disgruntled teenager Sunday. And when one of the bullets from the boy's rifle connected, the chopper was forced to make an emergency, 'crippled' landing at a local airport:

CBSLosAngeles.com reports:

The pilot managed to land the crippled chopper at Van Nuys Airport.

Danny Lopez, 18, was shooting a firearm because he was distraught over the death of a friend, according to police.

Lopez was tackled by his family and subsequently arrested for attempted murder of a police officer.

No one was injured.
