ATF agents are charging Wendell Bailey, 20, with shooting at a military rescue helicopter. The ATF agents had been sent to Algiers section of New Orleans after people called a local radio station radio to report they heard shots being fired. While checking the complaint, the agents say they heard shots fired at a military rescue helicopter and spotted two men trying to leave the building.

Federal agents patrolling a New Orleans neighborhood arrested a man accused of firing shots at a military rescue helicopter, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Wendell Bailey, 20, of New Orleans, was charged with attempting to damage aircraft and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. He was held in Baton Rouge pending an initial appearance before a federal magistrate.

During a news conference, U.S. Attorney Jim Letten of New Orleans said agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were dispatched Monday to the Algiers section of New Orleans following citizen complaints on radio station WWL of shots being fired. Agents heard gunfire from an apartment window as a helicopter flew over the neighborhood, Letten said.

While waiting for other agents, two men were seen leaving the building, talking about the shooting and saying "they won't be back now," according to a federal complaint. The men ran back into the apartment and agents secured the building before the two men came back out and claimed to be sleeping, according to the complaint.

Bailey if convicted can be sentenced up to 20 years in prison on the aircraft charge and 10 years on the firearms charge. Federal authorities have also said they are going to check the serial numbers off the fire arms found on the scene to see if they had been looted from a store earlier in the week.

If I were the judge, I would give him life without parole 30 years is not enough for scum like this. Needless to say Bailey is a convicted drug offender, so there is no doubt as to why he was shooting, either he was high, needed a fix or wanted to protect his drug stash.

Obviously they misunderestimated their intended target. Maybe they figured it was only a TV chopper getting footage for the 6 o'clock news.
I hope they rot in a prison cell for 40 years.
