A 23-year-old honor student is dead after he was fatally shot by a campus police officer during a traffic stop in San Antonio, Texas, police said.

University of the Incarnate Word student Robert Cameron Redus was pulled over by Cpl. Christopher Carter at 2:30 a.m. Friday near the campus for driving “erratically at a high rate of speed,” police said. Then, according to police, “a struggle ensued between the suspect driver and the police officer.” The incident occurred in the parking lot of the Tree House Apartments, which is adjacent to the campus.

Redus was shot multiple times during the struggle and pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

“There was boom, boom, boom, boom, boom — six shots,” a witness, who asked to not be identified, toldĀ ABC News affiliate KSAT-TV.

    This is just wrong. What was a campus police officer doing off campus? Obviously this officer could not control his emotions and should be tried for murder.
