KeShun Freeman praying for family, friends of Scout Schultz

Georgia Tech defensive end KeShun Freeman said he has been in prayer for the family and friends of Scout Schultz, the Tech student who was shot and killed by campus police Saturday.

“When tragedies like this strike the school, the best thing to do is keep the people who were involved in mind, the families,” Freeman said.

Freeman took solace in what he called a legacy, noting the superior academic record of the computer engineering major and leadership position with the Pride Alliance at Tech, a student organization for LGBTQIA students and their allies.

Schultz was shot by a campus police officer who was responding to a 911 call made by the student alerting authorities to the presence of a possibly armed individual matching Schultz’s physical description. The GBI is investigating the fatality.
