VILLA PARK, Ill. -- Authorities say a teen was fatally shot after getting into an altercation with a sheriff's deputy in suburban Chicago.

DuPage County Sheriffs were called to a home at Standish and Eliot Lanes in unincorporated Villa Park for a domestic disturbance Monday morning.

The first responding deputy got into an altercation with the 17-year-old at the house and subsequently shot him.

The deputy says he believed the teen had a knife.

The Daily Herald reports that the teen had mental health issues.

The teen was brought to Elmhurst Memorial Hospital and was pronounced dead.

Neighbors tell us this isn't the first time police have been called to that home for a domestic disturbance. Still they're shocked it ended with a man being shot by an officer.

An investigation is underway.
