Authorities in Mobile, Alabama, are investigating why a University of South Alabama police officer shot and killed an 18-year-old freshman who they say was naked and acting erratically outside the campus police station early Saturday.
The campus officer heard a loud banging noise on a window at the station at 1:23 a.m. CT (2:23 a.m. ET) Saturday, the university said in a statement. When he left the station to investigate, the school said, "he was confronted by a muscular, nude man who was acting erratically."
The man, later identified as Gilbert Thomas Collar, of Wetumpka, Alabama, repeatedly rushed and verbally challenged the officer in a fighting stance, the school said.
The officer, whose name hasn't been released, drew his weapon and ordered Collar to stop, the school said. The officer retreated several times to try to calm the situation.
"When the individual continued to rush toward the officer in a threatening manner and ignored the officer's repeated commands to stop, the officer fired one shot with his police sidearm, which struck the chest of the assailant," the school statement said. "The individual fell to the ground, but he got up once more and continued to challenge the officer further before collapsing and expiring."
18-летний студент 1 года обучения в голом виде вырупался на полицейского в районе студентческих общежитий. Полицейский приказал студенту успокоиться и прекратить нарушать порядок, но тот в ответ встал в боевую стойку и начал скакать вокруг копа. После очередного предупреждения полицейский шмальнул разок в студиозуса и тот свалился с копыт, но затем все же встал, еще попрыгал немного и только после этого упал и отошел в мир иной.
