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.

Georgia Tech says one of the three people arrested during a protest following a vigil for a student killed by campus police is a student at the university and the other two are not.

An officer fatally shot 21-year-old Scout Schultz late Saturday. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has said Schultz called 911 to report an armed suspicious person.

The school identified those arrested Monday night as Vincent Castillenti, Jacob Wilson and Cassandra Monden. Fulton County jail records identify the third person arrested as Andrew Xavier Monden.

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.
