An Investigation is Underway

Georgia investigators are looking into the deadly police shooting of a Georgia Tech student on campus. Scout Schultz was a 21-year-old senior majoring in engineering. The encounter was captured on cell phone video. Mark Strassmann reports on the questions over officers' use of force.

According to the investigators a multipurpose tool that contained a knife was recovered from the scene. The statement did not clearly reveal whether the knife was displayed but said "no firearms were recovered."

The attorney for Scout Schultz’s family stated on Monday night the knife remained in its holder and Scout’s arms were completely at the student’s side.

“It’s tragic that as Scout was battling mental health issues that pushed them to the edge of desperation, their life was taken with a bullet rather than saved with non-lethal force,” said the statement from L. Chris Stewart, the Schultz family attorney.

His Gender Remains Unverified

“Whatever happened, it shouldn’t have ended in a death,” the grieving father said during a Monday news conference.

When asked what he would say to the officer, he responded: “Why did you have to shoot? That’s the question. That’s the only question that matters right now. Why did you kill my son?”
