Mobile County Sheriff, Sam Cochran, was briefing at a press conference when he mentioned that the 18-years-old student had take LSD during a music festival on Saturday. The student assaulted two people in different vehicles and tried to bite a woman’s arm. He further mentioned that Collar visited the campus police headquarters, where he was mortally shot by university police officer, named Trevis Austin. Cochran clarified that investigators looked at the video surveillance, which demonstrated that Collar was indeed nude as he chased the withdrawing officer who fired at once, hitting in the student’s chest.
Cochran expressed “serious concerns” regarding the death of an unarmed student upon initially learning about the situation, but he claims to have “better understood” the judgment of the officer after witnessing the surveillance video. Cochran stated that “It’s very powerful.”
