ATLANTA — Georgia Tech officials say three people were arrested during a protest after a vigil for a student who was fatally shot by campus police.
Investigators said police shot and killed Scout Schultz late Saturday night after the 21-year-old student called 911 to report an armed and possibly intoxicated suspicious person who fit Schultz's physical description.
