A student at Georgia Tech contacted Milo News to report:
I don’t know if you’re following the events at Georgia Tech, but over the weekend our campus police shot and killed the leader of the pride alliance because he was walking around campus wielding a knife and refused to comply when they asked him to drop his weapon, then he approached an officer with it.
Today there was a vigil for his death, which turned into a violent protest and led to people torching a police car and everyone on campus was issued a warning to stay inside because of the violent protestors.
There were reportedly a lot of Antifa members of the vigil group who weren’t even associated with Georgia Tech, and now it’s dangerous to leave my house which is one block away from where the car was torched.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution confirms the report, adding that at least one person was injured in the incident.
A police car was set afire as about 50 participants marched to the Georgia Tech Police Department on the corner of Hemphill and First avenues. It was unclear who set the blaze.
An unidentified individual was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment Monday night.
Georgia Tech tweeted the lockdown notice to students and the wider community:
