These Two Kids Are Lucky To Be Alive

Police: Homeowner Shot At Burglars - Connecticut News Story - WFSB Hartford A homeowner finds 2 teens burglarizing his garage. He shoots at them, but misses. They run like rabbits.

Police catch up with them shortly after that, and arrest the two of them and have charged them with burglary.

It appears the homeowner was justified in shooting, only because the teens threatened him with a weapon - turned out to be a screwdriver. I don't think Connecticut has a version of the Castle Doctrine I would care to live with.
