CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. — Charlotte County Sheriff's Department divers continue the search for the weapon they believe was involved in the stabbing of a teen boy during a series of burglaries.

We're talking with one of those homeowners who say they took action when trouble came to their house.

Now, this is a tragedy for the family and the entire Southwest Florida Community.
