(MOBILE, Ala.) - It's been a week since a University of South Alabama student was shot and killed on campus by a campus police officer.
Just after one o'clock last Saturday, Officer Trevis Austin fired one shot at Collar, hitting him in the chest. Officials said Collar was naked, unarmed and acting erratically banging on the window of the campus police department.
Austin, with his gun already drawn, tried to talk down Collar several times as the teen advanced toward him in an aggressive manner.
Mobile County Sheriff's Department investigators believe Collar may have taken LSD that night. Evidence shows Collar may have gotten the drug while attending Bayfest in downtown Mobile.
Sheriff Sam Cochran said, in addition to the investigation into Collar's death, they plan to charge the person who gave Collar the LSD with murder, as the illegal act led up to Collar's death.
Meanwhile, Collar's family hired attorney Jere Beasley to perform their own investigation as to whether or not the officer's use of lethal force was necessary in this case.
University officials confirmed with Local 15 News on Friday that Officer Trevis Austin had pepper spray and a baton at his disposal at the time of the shooting.
