The Georgia Tech community is left with many questions after a student leader was fatally shot by campus police last weekend.
Scout Schultz was a fourth-year engineering student from Lilburn, Georgia, and president of Georgia Tech’s Pride Alliance.
Last Saturday evening, police say Schultz called 911 to report a person armed with a knife and potentially a gun.
School officials say Schultz then encountered campus police and ignored repeated commands to drop a multipurpose tool. Officer Tyler Beck, a 16-month veteran of the campus police force, fired a single shot, and Scout Schultz later died at the hospital.
