Authorities say a woman in the house believed someone was breaking in and called the teen’s father, who lives next door. The father grabbed a gun.

Troopers say the father confronted the teen, who was wearing a ski mask and black clothing. They say the father fired his gun when the youth went at him with a weapon.

No charges have been filed against the father, Jeffrey Giuliano.
