Here’s a good face palm for your Tuesday evening. An armed man attempted to steal a helicopter from the airport. According to KATU, Airport employees reported that they heard at least one gunshot the man tried to steal the chopper.

WSBTV reports:

Police told KOIN that a masked man jumped a fence that surrounds airport property and confronted a helicopter instructor and a student pilot. Officials told OregonLive.com that the pair was in a helicopter outside the Hillsboro Aero Academy.
The suspect, whose name has not been released, fired a single shot into the air and the instructor and student pilot fled, according to KOIN. Neither were injured.
The suspect jumped back over a fence onto Cornell Road and crossed the street to a field, KOIN reported.

It is unclear what he was planning to do with the chopper if he was successful in stealing it. However, we may not ever truly get that answer. The idiot was shot and killed by police.

Honestly though, what exactly did he expect to happen? Sounds like a case of natural selection if you ask me.
