OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man says he was shooting at a stop sign when the bullets accidentally wounded two teenagers.

A police officer testified Tuesday at a preliminary hearing in Douglas County Court that 21-year-old Davonte Hill told him he did not fire his gun at the two 16-year-old boys during the June 8 incident. The officer said Hill first denied involvement in the shooting but later changed his story.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1k30FIX ) one teen is recovering from a foot injury and another is recovering from a thigh wound.

Authorities say Hill shot the teens as they were walking with friends. He faces two counts of felony assault and two counts of use of a weapon to commit a felony. Court records do not list an attorney.
