The parents of a University of South Alabama freshman who was shot to death by campus police are suing over his death.
An attorney for relatives of Gil Collar says the 18-year-old freshman never touched the officer, and the shooting never should have happened.
Attorney Jere Beasley says the family is filing suit against the school and the officer. The university had no immediate comment.
Police and witnesses say Collar was nude and acting erratically outside the campus police station before he was shot to death on Oct. 6.
Witnesses say a University of South Alabama student was screaming obscenities and talking about being on a "spiritual quest" shortly before campus police fatally shot him.
Two students who knew 18-year-old Gil Collar described him Monday as appearing intoxicated shortly before his death early Saturday.
The university says Collar was nude, acting erratically and challenging a police officer when the officer opened fire. A school statement makes no mention of Collar being armed.
