OMAHA, Neb. (AP) A teenager has been charged with five felonies including attempted murder after investigators say he fired on Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies with a 12-gauge shotgun, hitting one.

The 17-year-old was charged Friday with two counts of attempted murder, one count of second-degree assault and two weapons counts. The Associated Press generally does not name juveniles charged with crimes.

Investigators say the deputies were called to the boy’s Waterloo home before dawn by his parents after the teen reportedly attacked them with a baseball bat when they confronted him about drinking alcohol.
