A vigil for a non-binary engineering student who was shot and killed by Georgia Tech campus police turned into a violent riot Monday.

Protesters set a police car on fire as a group of 50 marched to the Georgia Tech Police Department on the Atlanta campus. One officer is in the hospital and three demonstrators are in jail.

The university tweeted Monday evening: ‘Stay inside due to violent protests on campus. Avoid Hemphill Avenue. Stay inside until told otherwise.’

The protests followed the death of Scout Schultz, 21, who was killed by campus police after they thought the student was threatening them with a small knife.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Nelly Miles says three suicide notes were found in Schultz’s dorm room. Investigators revealed Schultz made the phone call to police about an ‘armed’ and suspicious person fitting their description.
