Counselors and support staff will be available to students Monday at Minnetonka High School following the shooting death of a 16-year-old in Chanhassen.
On Sunday, an autopsy report revealed 16-year-old Archer Amorosi, who was a student at the high school, died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds.
According to investigators, the incident happened when Amorosi's mother called 911 Friday morning, reporting her son was threatening her with knives and a baseball bat and making suicidal comments.
When two Carver County deputies arrived at a residence on the 6400 block of Oriole Avenue, they encountered Amorosi, who they said had a gun and refused to drop it.
Investigators said it was at that point the deputies deployed a Taser and pepper spray. Investigators said at some point during the encounter, the two deputies fired their weapons.
Amorosi was pronounced dead at the scene.
Both deputies have been placed on standard administrative leave and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating.
Those with whom 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS has spoken said Amorosi was a hardworking student athlete and that he will be missed.
Those who wish to speak with counselors may do so beginning at 8 a.m. at Minnetonka High School.
