MOBILE, Ala. (October 11, 2012)--A video of the shooting of a naked University of South Alabama student shows the teenager with his arms outstretched and his palms open before a campus police officer fired.
The Mobile County Sheriff's Department played the security video for media Thursday.
A camera outside the University of South Alabama police station recorded the scene moments before Gil Collar, 18, was shot to death early Saturday morning.
Police say Collar had taken LSD.
The video shows Collar walking slowly toward a campus police station door twice, and then pounding on it violently.
An officer emerged with gun drawn and the two moved into the yard with the student approaching the officer.
The shooting occurred less than 30 seconds after the officer went outside.
A second officer arrived, and the two officers wrestled the wounded student to the ground and handcuffed him.
