It’s college tour season. On Friday, a dozen prospective students stroll through the Georgia Tech campus. Some pass by colorful chalk messages on the sidewalk that say “We are one GT” and “We love GTPD.”

It’s been just over a week since Georgia Tech police shot and killed a student on campus. Days later, two officers sustained minor injuries during clashes with protesters after a vigil.

The officer who fatally shot a Georgia Tech student had been with the campus police department for about 16 months, according to state records.

Officer Tyler Beck shot and killed Scout Schultz, 21, Saturday night after the fourth-year student called 911 to report an armed and possibly intoxicated suspicious person, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.

Beck is on paid leave pending the outcome of the investigation, Georgia Tech said on its website.
