iStock/Thinkstock(MELBOURNE, Fla.) -- At least three people were killed in a helicopter crash in Palm Bay, Florida, authorities told ABC News.

"My understanding is that no one walked away," Brevard County Fire Rescue Public Information Officer Don Walker said.

The Sikorsky S-61N crashed approximately 10 miles southwest of the Melbourne International Airport Tuesday afternoon, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement.

According to the Palm Bay Police Department, the chopper -- a "military style aircraft" that was not operating in any military capacity -- was reportedly "flying low."
