LGBTQ Student-Activist Fatally Shot By Campus Police

By Dennis Matthew Livesey

Scout Schultz, a 21-year-old Georgia Tech engineering student and LGBTQ activist, was fatally shot Saturday evening after police responded to a 911 call describing a suspicious person, possibly intoxicated, holding a knife or a gun. Police found Schultz outside of the campus dorm barefoot and disoriented.  

The community is mourning Schultz's death, as well as questioning excessive police force.
