    ong> - (AP) -- The State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the shooting of a teenager by a police officer in Boiling Springs Lakes over the weekend.

    Brunswick County District Attorney Jon David asked for the investigation after the shooting Sunday afternoon.

    Family members said they called police after 18-year-old Keith Vidal picked up a screwdriver and threatened his mother.

    Mark Wilsey Sr. says that initially officers were able to calm his son, who suffers from schizophrenia. But Wilsey says when a third officer arrived, his son became agitated. Wilsey says officers used a stun gun on Vidal and then a shot was fired and Vidal was hit.

    Authorities say officers from three agencies responded. They have not released additional details.
