New footage has emerged showing the moment a suicidal gender fluid Georgia Tech student was fatally shot by a campus police officer. Scout Schultz, 21, died after being shot on the university's Atlanta campus by officer Tyler Beck on the night of September 16. The new video, which was filmed by a student in a nearby residential hall and tweeted out by the lawyer for the victim's family on Wednesday, shows Schultz walking slowly towards three officers. The officers can be seen forming a semi-circle around Schultz, who identified as gender non-binary, about 20-feet away. Beck can be seen shining his flashlight at Schultz as the 21-year-old approached them. Schultz, who preferred to be referred to as 'them', had earlier called 911 to report a man fitting the student's description with 'long blond hair' and wearing a 'white t-shirt' walking around campus with a knife or gun. The student was carrying a utility tool with the blade not extended as the 21-year-old approached the officers. The family's lawyer, Chris Stewart, says the new footage shows the vast distance between Schultz and the officers and has argued that Beck should have been able to tell the student wasn't armed with a knife.
