The Latest: Teen threatening mom killed by Sheriff's deputies

Posted:

CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) - Investigators say a 16-year-old boy who was reportedly suicidal and threatening his mother with knives and a baseball bat has been fatally shot by police.

The shooting happened Friday morning.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said Carver County sheriff's deputies were called to a home in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen after the teen's mother called 911.

The agency says deputies used a stun gun on the teenager, and two deputies fired their guns, hitting him.

One deputy suffered injuries that were not life-threatening.

The teenager's name hasn't been released.

The bureau says body cameras and squad car cameras may have recorded portions of the incident.

Officials in the school district where the teen attended high school declined to comment until they had more information from authorities.
