Riverside police offered a $5,000 reward Monday for information about the New Year's weekend shooting that downed a police helicopter and wounded its pilot. A Riverside police helicopter was forced down late New Year's Eve after being struck by three shots from two high-powered rifles. Two bullets hit pilot John Fehrs in the foot and another struck the aircraft's fuel tank, forcing the helicopter to land in a street. "It was purposeful fire," Police Chief Ken Fortier said.

A Fontana man with only one hour of flight instruction escaped with minor cuts and bruises when he lost control of his newly purchased helicopter and crashed at Fla-Bob Airport in Rubidoux. Cline Hogg, 58, said he had saved for 20 years to buy the Hughes 269B helicopter but did not have it insured. He said he had not intended to leave the ground and was warming up the engine while waiting for his instructor when the aircraft soared about 75 feet into the air.
