CHANHASSEN — Police were called to the Chanhassen home where a teenager was fatally shot by deputies a total of nine times in the last three years.

The last call — a mental health call — was made Friday. Authorities said Archer Amorosi’s mother called 911 to say her son was suicidal and threatening her with knives and a baseball bat. Investigators said the 16-year-old ran out of the house with a hatchet and what appeared to be a handgun.

Deputies used a stun gun on Amorosi before two Carver County deputies fired their guns. Amorosi died. A hatchet and BB gun were found nearby.
