Clashes at US university after police kill student

Three people arrested and students ordered to shelter in place at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta during violent protests

Video posted on social media showed a campus police vehicle burning in the street and officers pinning people to the ground as onlookers shouted at them.

Three people were arrested when protests turned violent Monday night on Georgia Tech's campus after a vigil for a student who was fatally shot by campus police.

Georgia Tech President Peterson said Tuesday that the school is committed to finding out conclusively what happened but that "we must rely on professional investigation and evaluation, and not draw conclusions too quickly".

Scout, a fourth-year student at Georgia Tech, was born in Rockville, Md., and spent time in Iowa, Missouri and Florida before moving to the Atlanta area six years ago.

But Schultz's "knife" was merely a multitool with no blade in sight, according to the student's family. The posts say Beck had joined the department the previous summer as a public safety officer, which the posts tout as a good way to start a law enforcement career. But it does not appear from the records that any of the training courses focused specifically on dealing with people with mental health problems.

Police say Schultz-who identified as non-binary and preferred the pronoun "they"-was shot after refusing to drop a knife".

While no gun was found at the scene, a multi-purpose tool contained a knife was recovered.

Tech doctoral student Xincheng Shen told CNN that about a dozen people held a banner that said "Protect LGBTQ" and were chanting, "This is not OK", and, "Justice now".

He said he doesn't think Schultz was attempting "suicide by police", and officers should have used nonlethal force.

On Saturday night, officers responded to a 911 call that a man "with long blond hair" was walking around campus with a gun and a knife.

Police shot and killed Schultz late Saturday night. Another encourages Schultz, "Come on, let's drop it".

Chris Stewart, the attorney for the Schultz family, said he commended the patience of the other officers involved in the incident.




William Schultz told reporters Monday that his child had a 3.9 GPA and was on track to graduate early in December.

Scout Schultz, 21, was shot and killed by Georgia Tech police.

"Scout's family respects the rights of those who wish to voice opposition to what they feel was an unnecessary use of force, but they ask that it be done respectfully and safely".

"I'm bisexual, nonbinary and intersex", Schultz wrote in a Pride Alliance profile.

Two officers were injured Monday night, according to Georgia Tech.

Video on social media from the scene shows the police vehicle ablaze and demonstrators - some with their faces covered with bandanas - confronting police who were making arrests.

After a vigil for the slain student, "a group of approximately 50 protestors marched to the Georgia Tech Police Department".

Two police officers received minor injures and one of them was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital, a Tech spokesman said.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation latter informed about three suicide notes found in Schultz's dorm room. "They pushed us to do more events and a larger variety events, and we would not be the organization we are known as without their constant hard work and dedication". "They were only after certain people".

Jacob David Wilson, of Atlanta, is facing two counts of aggravated assault against a peace officer and three counts of criminal trespass, according to Flanagan.

Andrew Xavier Monden, of Atlanta, faces charges of interference with government property and inciting rioting, Flanagan said.
