The family of a Georgia Institute of Technology student shot and killed by police in Atlanta over the weekend is questioning why campus officers did not try to disarm the knife-wielding computer engineering major with nonlethal force.
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.
