A young LGBT leader is dead after an incident with police on Saturday evening — one that sounds like it was tragically mishandled.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Scout Schultz approached four Georgia Tech police officers yelling, "Shoot me!" while brandishing a pocket knife — whose blade, according to photos, wasn't even extended.

After numerous commands to drop the knife went unanswered, one of the campus cops shot Scout in the heart. They were pronounced dead half an hour later.

Obviously Scout was troubled. But this seems like the type of thing that could have been de-escalated if these police had any crisis training whatsoever!

Chris Stewart, lawyer for Scout's parents, agrees nonlethal force should have been used:

Former NBA Player Turns Himself In Arrested For Murder Charges

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadBasketball

Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton, who was suspended from the Washington Wizards after bringing a firearm into the locker room, has been arrested after being charged with murder.

Authorities in Atlanta, Georgia believe Crittenton is responsible for the August 19th murder of a 22-year-old woman who was shot as she was walking on the street in the city.

The former basketball star, who played for Georgia Tech in college, had fled to Los Angeles with a one-way ticket, but agreed to turn himself in after being charged.

Before he could turn himself in, however, FBI apprehended him at John Wayne Airport in Southern California on Monday night.

At least they got him one way or the other.

Check out the video above for more details surrounding the case against Crittenton.
