Vigil at Georgia Tech turns violent in aftermath of police s

A vigil at Georgia Tech to remember a student gunned down by campus police turned violent Monday night.

A police car was set afire as about 50 participants marched to the Georgia Tech Police Department on the corner of Hemphill and First avenues. It was unclear who set  the blaze.

Georgia Tech tweeted that students should “shelter in place.” Atlanta Police had been called into to assist Georgia Tech police.

Schulz was shot and killed after a confrontation with Georgia Tech campus police late Saturday night. They have said the 21-year-old engineering student had a knife and refused commands to stop.

A lawyer for the family said Schultz had a utility tool and the blade wasn’t out.
