"Airborne target of interest" crashes near Charleston

This is a weird story to wake up to on a Saturday morning:
A multi-engine airplane being tracked across the country by U.S. Air Force F-16s crashed and burned several miles northwest of Charleston on Friday night, federal officials said.

The plane, a Beech Baron 56TC, was labeled “an airborne target of interest" by the Department of Homeland Security. The plane crashed around 10:30 p.m. Local officials got conflicting reports about whether one of the F-16s fired on the plane.
