Scout's mother, Lynn Schultz, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that her oldest child suffered from a number of medical issues over the years, including depression.

Georgia Tech students watched in horror as the school's Pride president was shot to death by police on the Atlanta campus after the student advanced on them with a knife.

At least one protester reportedly tossed a flare into the police vehicle, setting it ablaze. Fellow students rushing to her aid as she's pinned to the ground.

In a story September 17 about the death of Georgia Tech student Scout Schultz, The Associated Press incorrectly quoted Schultz's mother as saying her oldest child had twice attempted suicide. Georgia Tech on Monday refused to release personnel or disciplinary reports involving the officers, saying such information is exempt from Georgia's open records law.

Georgia Tech said that the campus police arrested three people - Vincent Castillenti, Jacob Wilson and Cassandra Monden - and charged them with inciting a riot and battery of an officer.

According to the Investigation Bureau, a 911 call was made at around 11:17pm. "Drop the knife!" an officer responded. Lynne Schultz told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Schultz had attempted suicide two years ago.

But Stewart disputes that the student activist- president of the Georgia Tech Pride Alliance- had a deadly weapon on him at all.

'We love you Scout and we will continue to push for change, ' the statement concluded. A single gunshot is heard.

Attorney Chris Stewart said that the officer thought Schultz "was having a mental breakdown and didn't know what to do". Stewart and the student's family plan a news conference Monday morning.

The officers repeatedly tell Schultz to drop the knife and one says, "Nobody wants to hurt you". In a Facebook post about Schultz's death, Pride Alliance described them as "the driving force" behind the organization.

"Drop the knife! Drop the knife!" the officers were heard shouting back.

Investigators recovered a multi-purpose tool that included a knife at the scene but didn't find any guns, Ms Miles said.

Schultz's parents have questioned the officer's use of lethal force.

A spokesperson for the Georgia Institute of Technology confirms one of their officers was involved in an on campus shooting Saturday night.
