Bright falling object falls in a direct line than maneuvers an "L" shape at tremendous speed.

At approximately 8:50 pm, while turning into my apartment complex, and was about to pull into my parking space, a falling bright white light that was north/east above the municipal airport caught my attention. I stopped and noticed that the object, a bright white round looking object, which in the night sky would be about as bright as a star in the night sky.

This object came down at an a tremendous speed, and the amazing thing about the light was it came straight down, than made an instant maneuver as an L light down, than light sped off horizontally and I only caught the seconds of this object whisking behind the trees that blocked my view. However, the bright white light was for a brief few seconds in my sight. I immediately pulled out of my parking to take a drive in the direction of this light object to see if I could or might see it again , and pulled over to watch and did not see this light again.

Within 30 minutes, I heard the sheriff helicopter in the area, could be unrelated, circling the in the area for about 15 minutes.
