MOBILE, Ala. (October 10, 2012)--Students were planning a demonstration Wednesday to protest a deadly police shooting on the campus of the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Ala.
Organizers say a campus police officer who shot and killed Gil Collar, 18, of Wetumpka early Saturday shouldn't have used deadly force.
Authorities say Collar had taken LSD and was threatening the officer.
Critics including organizer Jonathan Ark say the officer should have done something else to stop the 5-foot-7 freshman.
Mobile County Sheriff Sam Cochran said the officer who shot Collar was armed only with a gun and not a stun gun, pepper spray or baton.
A prosecutor says grand jurors will review the shooting and alleged drug involvement for possible charges, although it's unclear when.
