COLUMBUS: Police in Ohio’s capital say a police helicopter flying in the middle of the night made an emergency landing in a store parking lot.

WCMH-TV reports the pilot of the Columbus police helicopter landed it near a shopping plaza on the city’s west side as a precaution after a warning light appeared.

After the unplanned landing around midnight, WBNS-TV says the helicopter returned to the police heliport early Thursday morning.

No injuries were reported.
