A naked Alabama University student got into a confrontation with campus police Saturday night and the 18-year-old Gilbert Collar was shot dead when he came within 5 feet from the officers.
Collar was naked and acting erratically banging on the campus police stations door.
The officers did tell the student to retreat and he didn’t comply. The whole incident was caught on camera but will not be for the public eye until the investigation and possible charges against the officers are filed.
The family and teens lawyer says the death was unjustified. Officers could have used pepper spray or a baton which they did have on them at the time the incident occurred.
Collar has no history of drug use or violence. An autopsy will determined if there were any drugs in his system.
