FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. - Authorities in Florida are investigating a shooting after they say a man opened fire on teenagers playing "Pokemon Go."

Around 2 a.m. on Saturday, detectives told WESH that a man heard a loud noise outside his home and saw a white car parked near the curb.

Investigators say he grabbed his gun and heard one of the teens say, "Did you get anything?"

The homeowner told police he believed the teens were responsible for stealing something, so he got in front of their car and yelled at them to stop.

The man claimed they drove toward him, so he moved out-of-the-way and shot the vehicle several times.

The victim's mother called police to say that her 19-year-old son and his 16-year-old friend were shot at while playing "Pokemon Go."

Fortunately, neither of them were injured.
