BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say a teenager who was fatally shot by police in a Kansas City suburb had left a suicide note inside a home where he told police someone was trying to break in.

Blue Springs police say they got a call shortly before 5 a.m. Wednesday about a possible burglary in progress. When they arrived officers found a person matching the suspect description holding a knife.

Police say the 16-year-old boy charged at officers with a knife and was fatally shot. They say the suicide note in the home indicated he planned to create a confrontation with police and had made the initial 911 call.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the teen's name is not being released because he is a juvenile.
