LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) -- - Two teenagers shot and killed in a home near Little Falls have been identified.
School officials say the victims were cousins, 18-year-old Haile Kifer and 17-year-old Nicholas Brady. The shooter, 64-year-old Byron David Smith of Little Falls, is being held for second-degree murder and is likely to be charged Monday.
Kifer was a senior at Little Falls High School. Superintendent Stephen Jones said Sunday he was notified of her death by investigators. Brady was a student at Pillager High School. The Star Tribune identified him after interviewing his principal.
Morrison County deputies went to Smith's house Friday on a suspicious activity call.
They say he confessed to shooting the teenagers a day earlier after they broke into his house, but Sheriff Michel Wetzel says investigators believe he exceeded self-defense.
