Rockford area aircraft support shooting investigation

Posted: Updated:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

A couple of local aircraft were called in to support the investigation immediately after the Sikh temple shooting in suburban Milwaukee.

Air One, which used to be known as the Law Enforcement Aviation Coalition, flew 3 of its helicopters - one from Rockford, one from Freeport, and one from Waukegan, as air support. 

Chief Pilot Randy Olson says, Air One took snipers into the air while investigators on the ground searched to see if the shooter was alone.
