Vigil Held For Unarmed TX Student Killed By Campus Cop (VIDEO)

Published On December 8, 2013 | By james |

Students at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas are struggling to understand why a fellow student was shot and killed while being apparently unarmed.

Robert Cameron Redus, 23, was killed by a campus police officer early Saturday morning during an alleged altercation at a traffic stop in his apartment complex near the campus. Friends described Redus as compassionate and caring, and “not aggressive at all.”

Longtime friend Annie Jones described Redus as;

“…the sweetest, kindest, gentlest person, so compassionate…”

KSAT News quotes an “unnamed man” who witnessed the incident, who told the station;

“I didn’t hear (the officer) say anything like, ‘Get down on your hands and knees,’ you know? I didn’t hear him say anything. He just started shooting. He emptied the gun on him. Boom, boom, boom. Six shots — five or six.”

Another witness, Mohammad Haidarasl, told the San Antonio Express News that right before the shots rang out;

“I heard (a man) say, ‘Oh, you’re gonna shoot me?’ like sarcastic almost.”

A Spokesperson for Alamo Heights Police Department said the police officer, Cpl. Chris Carter, has been put on administrative leave while the incident is being investigated.
