Clashes at US university after police kill student

Police surrounded Schultz and tried to get him to drop the knife, while Schultz shouted "Shoot me!" at officers and advanced towards them.

Police shot and killed 21-year-old Scout Schultz late Saturday night. New evidence uncovered by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) shows that Schultz left three suicide notes in her dorm before calling police to report an individual wielding a knife, The Washington Post reported.

The university estimated that a about 50 people participated in the protests, including some who marched to the the Georgia Tech Police Department immmdiately after the "peaceful memorial vigil" for Schultz.

In two messages at 9:28 p.m. and 9:32 p.m., Georgia Tech tweeted that students should "seek shelter" due to "violent protests on campus".

Scout Schultz, a fourth-year computer engineering student in the USA state of Georgia, did not pose an immediate danger to police and instead needed help, but was gunned down nonetheless, according to his family.

A police vehicle was set on fire, two officers suffered minor injuries and one officer was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries during the "violent protests on campus", according to the university.

Earlier on Monday, family attorney L. Chris Stewart said Schultz was barefoot and "disoriented", in the middle of a "mental breakdown".

Schultz" parents issued the following statement on behalf of their attorney after the incident: "On behalf of the family of Scout Schultz, we ask that those who wish to protest Scout's death do so peacefully.

"Answering violence with violence is not the answer", they added.

No, the world is not ending on September 23
On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Nibiru is "a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians", according to NASA .

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) is now investigating the incident and reviewing all of the circumstances surrounding Scout's death.

"Scout always reminded us to think critically about the intersection of identities and how a multitude of factors play into one's experience on Tech's campus and beyond". 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.

"Nobody wants to hurt you, man", the officer says. Police have said Schultz had a knife and refused commands to stop.

"Shultz [sic] continued to advance on the officers with the knife".

"I am grateful for our students, faculty, staff, campus leaders, and for our campus police".

While the state's investigative bureau referred to Schultz as a male -- "Scott Schultz" - the student identified as intersex and used the pronoun "they".

Schultz ignored multiple orders to drop the weapon and stand still, and was shot once by police. Georgia Tech has refused to release any personnel records for Beck.

Lynne Schultz told the Journal-Constitution over the weekend that her oldest child had struggled with depression and attempted suicide two years ago.

"We love you Scout", the group wrote, "and we will continue to push for change".

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation, an independent statewide law enforcement agency, announced it has opened an investigation into the shooting at the request of Georgia Tech officials. Scout Schultz spent this past summer at home and there were no obvious problems when school resumed last month, the elder Schultz said.
