The district attorney’s office has said it will make the information public in the future, as part of a “complete report,” after its investigation is completed.
Police were called to Kehoe’s apartment on a report of an assault and were also trying to serve warrants when Kehoe made repeated attempts to stab them with a knife, according the district attorney’s earlier press release. When he lunged at them, he was shot and killed.
Kehoe, who was a longtime Peabody resident before moving to Danvers, had struggled for years with mental illness and substance abuse, a family friend confirmed. He had had prior scrapes with the law and most recently was charged with kidnapping and home invasion in South Boston and resisting arrest in Danvers.
