LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota homeowner who shot two teenagers in the midst of an apparent Thanksgiving Day break-in told authorities he feared they had a weapon.

Smith was charged Monday with two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of 18-year-old Haile Kifer and 17-year-old Nicholas Brady.
