College Student Killed By Campus Cop
Robert Cameron Redus was shot and killed following a traffic stop by a cop from University of the Incarnate Word. He was stopped for allegedly driving erratically.
During the traffic stop near the university’s San Antonio campus, Redus and the officer, who has been identified as Cpl. Chris Carter, got into some kind of tussle, Alamo Heights police Lt. Cindy Pruitt said.
The officer radioed for help, and multiple shots were fired. Redus was pronounced dead on the scene.
Redus, who graduated as co-valedictorian from Baytown Christian Academy, would have graduated from UIW in May…
A student vigil is scheduled for Saturday night at the Grotto on campus as the shocked communities continue to process Redus’ sudden death.
“He’s not an aggressive person at all, so the story just doesn’t really make sense to any of us,” Sarah Davis, one of Redus’ friends, told KTRK.
