It was a kid who tried to steal an American Eagle aircraft from a small airport at midnight (I’m talking about the incident in Arkansas)

Would this be considered a squawk 7500? And do you know if it was GA or Commercial?

OMG it crashed. I hope there was no passengers on board. I would call this a 7500

I don’t think it has updated yet. This just happened.

If you can turn into SEATAC center they were talking about it…

UPDATE: right now it is be reported as a Squawk 7500 or a hijacking

So it’s safe to say that fighters were deployed (likely F-15s) to intercept the foreign aircraft, which is believed to be an Alaskan Airlines Q400.
