Senior law enforcement official confirms that Virginia State Police troopers were killed in the helicopter crash this afternoon.
"Shortly before 5 p.m. (Saturday), a helicopter crashed into a wooded area near a residence on Old Farm Road". State police are on scene with Albemarle County police and fire units'. There are two confirmed fatalities.
Helicopters were reported flying overhead in Charlottesville as Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency after what is believed to be the largest gathering of white nationalists in a decade. Images from the scene showed part of an aircraft in a tree.
