Campus cop kills student after traffic stop

The campus police officer who shot Robert Cameron Redus said the 23-year-old student got out of his truck after a traffic stop, approached the officer and got into the struggle which claimed Redus' life.
Redus' friends at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas, say that's not the person they knew.
They knew a student who made the dean's list at the Catholic college and had been co-valedictorian of a Christian high school back home in Baytown, Texas. They knew a fun-loving campus television news anchor who was "the sweetest, kindest, gentlest person," as friend Annie Jones described him to CNN affiliate WOAI-TV.
Sarah Davis even attended a news conference at the Alamo Heights police station looking for information.
"The story just really doesn't make sense to any of us," she told CNN affiliate WOAI. " And I think we're mostly just angry and want answers."
