Investigators say someone inside a Temple University dorm room pointed a laser at a police helicopter.
The incident happened about 11:30 p.m. Monday inside a dorm room on the university’s campus.
Lieutenant David Bonk of the department’s aviation unit posted a photo on Twitter shortly after the incident. In the photo, a red light is seen reflecting off the top floor windows.
Lt. Bonk said the same individual “hit us twice tonight a few seconds apart.”
On Twitter, Lt. Bonk said police are not planning on pursuing the individual responsible for shining the laser at the helicopter.
However, Lt. Bonk offered a reminder that it is illegal to point lasers at an aircraft and it can temporarily blind the pilots.
