NC teen tells 911 he shot father, stepmother


CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) -- Police say a 15-year-old is in custody in connection with the fatal shooting of his father and stepmother in Mecklenburg County.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say they found the bodies of a man and woman in a house after receiving two 911 calls early Monday.

Police say a caller first told 911 dispatchers that he needed to talk with police but didn't say why. The same person called 911 again and police say he told the dispatcher he had shot his father and stepmother. He said he would wait for police at a nearby street corner.

Officers found the teen about three-quarters of a mile from the shooting scene.

Neither the victims nor the teen have been identified.
