The GBI is investigating the shooting of a student by a police officer on Georgia Tech’s campus Saturday night.
The AJC reports that Scout Schultz, 21, yelled at officers to shoot them while brandishing a knife. Video of the incident was shared across social media last night showing officers repeatedly asking Schultz to drop the knife.
Officials with Georgia Tech said Sunday morning they have no plans for a news conference on the incident.
Schultz was president of the campus Pride Alliance organization, according to a Facebook post from the Georgia Tech Progressive Student Alliance. There will be a vigil for Schultz on Monday night at 8 p.m. at the Georgia Tech Campanile.
Georgia Tech’s counseling center is available for students from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday at the 8th Street Apartments West Building Recreation Room and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the center throughout the week. The after-hours number for the Counseling Center is (404) 894-2575.
