Armed 🏳‍🌈LGBT 🙇Student Scout Schultz 🔫Shot Dead by 👮Police

Police in the US state of Georgia have shot and killed an LGBT student activist, leading to an independent investigation. Police encountered Scout Schultz at a campus in Atlanta after a call about "a person with a knife and a gun" late on Saturday, officials say.

Footage has emerged apparently showing Schultz, 21, refusing to obey multiple police commands to drop a knife. Schultz's mother said police should not have used lethal force. In a video filmed by fellow students at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Schultz is heard saying "Shoot me!" while continuing to advance on the officers. One of them then opens fire.

Schultz - who identified as neither male nor female - did not appear to be holding a gun, investigators said, despite what had initially been reported to police.
The computer engineering student later died in hospital, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.
