Campus police at California State University San Bernardino shot and killed a graduate student following an altercation Saturday night, authorities said.
Police said officers responded to University Village, an off-campus student dormitory, regarding a disturbance involving Bartholomew Williams, 38.
Williams became aggressive and an altercation with officers followed in the hallway of the dorm, the college said in a statement. Officers then fired their weapons because they feared for their lives, police said.
Williams died at the scene.
One officer was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injury.
Williams was majoring in educational instructional technology, and started at the school in the summer of 2011, police spokesman Sid Robinson said.
Well trained?! How often do they train in unarmed combat, how often do they qualify with their weapon? Just because they get a lot of money for cute programs doesn't mean the fundamentals are there. Just because they have nice gear doesn't mean they are skilled with it? We shoot almost every week at my work. We fight almost every week, We train we train to inoculate ourselves from stress we are ready. We train in these rarely used fundamentals so we are ready for when it happens. That is well trained.
