Officials: Man shoots at Pokemon Go players outside house

PALM COAST, FL -- Authorities say a Florida man fired shots at two late-night Pokemon Go players in a car outside his house but no one was injured.

Flagler County Sheriff's Office spokesman James Troiano says in a news release that the homeowner awoke to a noise outside about 1:30am Saturday and saw a car sitting in the road in front of his house. He told authorities he got a handgun and approached the vehicle.

Troiano says the two teens in the car sped away and the man fired several shots at them.
