A teenager is in trouble after posting online a video that shows shots being fired from a drone that had been rigged to carry a handgun. The Federal aviation officials said on Tuesday it was investigating whether 18-year-old Austin Haughwout, of Clinton, violated its regulations, which prohibit the careless or reckless operation of a model aircraft. Haughwout's father said that his son created the drone with the help of a Central Connecticut State University professor. The 14-second video shows a four-propeller drone with a semiautomatic handgun strapped on top hovering as it fires four shots in a wooded area.
