Authorities say one person aboard a helicopter was killed Tuesday when the aircraft crashed into a home in Jackson.

The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed the death. A second victim aboard the helicopter was taken to the University of Mississippi Medical Center. A hospital spokesman did not know the victim's condition.

Jackson Police Department spokesman Jeffrey Scott said the home, on Hollomon Avenue near Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Perkins Street, appeared to be vacant. The site is not far from Hawkins Airport.
