Minn. man says he 'fired more shots than I needed'

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.

But Byron David Smith of Little Falls acknowledged in a criminal complaint that he fired "more shots than (he) needed to." Smith also described "a good clean finishing shot" for one teen.

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.
