Neal said he rushed his family back into their vehicle and went to a nearby parking lot.

Police in OR fatally shot a man who attempted to steal a helicopter from a private air hangar at an airport near Portland, authorities said Monday.

The shot, and maybe a second misfire, were directed away from the victims, Reimann said.

The incident is not believed to be an act of terrorism, Reimann said. "At that point our sergeant showed up". He then ran as well, climbed a fence and ran across Northeast Cornell Road, near the Comfort Inn. Emergency services tried to save him but the suspect died on the scene before noon, authorities said. There were no reports of other injuries. The man did not reveal his plans to the flight instructor and student, he said.

The Hillsboro Aero Academy is the flight-training school at the airport. An officer-involved shooting occurred in the park, leaving the suspect dead, Reimann said.
