U.S. university police kill student suffering from depression

Students gathered yesterday evening at 8 pm to hold a vigil for Schultz, who was a fourth-year computer engineering student.

Police officers warned Schultz to drop the small knife before opening fire on the student in a campus parking lot, video footage shows.

A Georgia Institute of Technology campus police officer shot to death the president of Pride Alliance, the school's LGBT student group, shortly before midnight on Saturday, Sept. 16, during an incident in which police say the student approached officers with a knife in a threatening way.

Georgia Tech instructed students to stay inside during the unrest, but later announced that "the campus has been cleared of any threats".

In a story September 17 about the death of Georgia Tech student Scout Schultz, The Associated Press incorrectly quoted Schultz's mother as saying her oldest child had twice attempted suicide.

Two officers suffered minor injuries and one of them was taken to a hospital for treatment, according to the Post. Three demonstrators have been charged with battery and inciting a riot.

"That's baffling to me that on a college campus you'd rather give the officers the most deadly weapons and not equip them with less-lethal weapons", Stewart said, noting that Schultz's family is hoping the death leads to changes within the department, including better training.

An attorney for the Schultz family issued a statement which asked protests or Scout's death to "do so peacefully". "Answering violence with violence is not the answer", the statement said, according to the Post.

Old Trafford is one of the best stadiums in the world. "Those are the top games where I need to show people I belong to them too". It wasn't so long ago that Swiss team Basel possessed a reputation for being a scourge of English clubs in European competition.

While the state's investigative bureau referred to Schultz as a male - "Scott Schultz" - the student and the student's family used the pronoun "them", and on the Pride Alliance website Schultz used the description "bisexual, nonbinary and intersex". "I think (Scout) was having a mental breakdown and didn't know what to do ..." Stewart said that only one officer fired and that none of the other officers who responded from the Georgia Tech police had been issued stun guns.

Police in the video can be heard yelling, "Nobody wants to hurt you", after Schultz's repeated calls for them to shoot him.

It said Mr Shultz was armed with a knife and was not cooperative or complying with officers' commands.

Schultz, holding a knife, continues to walk toward the officers before one of them shoots him a single time.

Hours later, university said the campus was back to normal - Shen described it as "eerily quiet" - and that classes would resume as scheduled Tuesday morning. And since January 2015, USA police have killed at least 392 people who were armed with knives, blades or other edged weapons - 102 deaths this year alone, including Schultz.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is handling the shooting investigation.

"Scout should not have been shot", Stewart said, according to ABC. Lynne Schultz told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Schultz had attempted suicide two years ago.

"This is how we truly honour Scout's life and legacy".

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".
