UPDATE: AL Freshman Campus Shooting
Police: Student Took LSD Before Campus Shooting - ABC News
A University of South Alabama freshman wasn't armed when he was fatally shot by a campus police officer, authorities said Tuesday, and he had taken LSD, assaulted others and chased the officer before being killed.
Collar went to a music festival and took the drug before assaulting two people in vehicles and attempting to bite a woman's arm, Cochran said.
Cochran said he had "serious concerns" about the killing of an unarmed student when he first heard what had happened, but he better understood the officer's decision to open fire after watching the videotape of the shooting.
"It's very powerful," said Cochran.
Cochran said authorities will allow Collar's family and media representatives to view the recording later, but it will not be released publicly.
