Armed Drone Triggers Federal Investigation

A video has surfaced of a handgun being fired from a hovering camera drone. This video went viral by an 18 year old student from Connecticut. His father said that it was for a school project. While armed drones are currently used in the government arsenal in targeting terrorists in distant countries, the idea of this video is a bit frightening. The FAA & law agencies are trying to determine if there were any violations of criminal statutes,"the FAA said".

The local authorities are investigating whether any laws could have been broken when the handgun drone fired four shots on the wooded area of the 18 year old student's residence in Clinton,CT authorities said.

"We are attempting to determine if any laws have been violated at this point. It would seem to the average person, there should be something prohibiting a person from attaching a weapon to a drone. At this point, we can't find anything that's been violated," Clinton Police Chief Todd Lawrie said.
