Family seeks answers after Georgia Tech student killed by police
Scout Schultz, 21, died after being shot on campus on Saturday night. The student ignored repeated commands to drop the knife and stop moving toward officers, police said.
Chris Stewart, a lawyer representing the family, said at a news conference on Monday that Scout Schultz was carrying a fold-out utility knife.
“The narrative out there says he was wielding a knife,” Stewart said, adding that the knife was a multi-purpose tool with pliers and “a tiny little blade that was not even open.”
