Man dies after being shot by Danvers police

A 37-year-old Danvers man was fatally shot by police Thursday night in the Avalon Danvers complex on the site of the former Danvers state hospital, officials said today.

Scott Kehoe was armed with a knife and lunged toward an officer during a confrontation. At that point, officers “deployed lethal force,” according to preliminary investigation, Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett’s office said in a statement.
