SAN BERNADINO, Calif. — Campus police shot and killed a 38-year-old Cal State San Bernardino University student outside his apartment after he grappled for an officer's baton, grabbed and used pepper spray, and then began kicking an officer in the head, city police officials said.

"According to his mother … he'd been off his medications (for bipolar disorder) for at least a week," Sgt. Gary Robertson said of Bartholomew Williams, who died at the scene of the 6:56 p.m. confrontation Saturday, Dec. 8, at University Village along the 1500 block of West Northpark Boulevard.
