MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Friends of a University of South Alabama student are questioning his fatal shooting by a campus police officer.

Colgan Meanor says 18-year-old Gil Collar of Wetumpka was an outgoing athlete who loved wrestling in high school. She says she’s shocked over his killing by an officer outside the university police department early Saturday.

Another friend of Collar, Tyler Kendrick, says the officer shouldn’t have drawn his weapon on an unarmed person.

School officials say the student ignored repeated commands to stop. The school says Collar was nude and acting erratically when he confronted the officer.

The officer is on paid leave, and an autopsy will determine if drugs or alcohol were involved.

Campus officials say the confrontation was recorded by security cameras.
