U.S. military officials on Sunday told NBC News that a U.S. F-16 fighter jet had shot down an unidentified object over Lake Huron — the fourth flying object to be downed in North American airspace in under two weeks.

The operation was additionally confirmed by Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.), who first tweeted that the military was keeping "an extremely close eye on the object above Lake Huron," and later added that the object had been "downed by pilots from the U.S. Air Force and National Guard."
