A male-to-trans was among three people arrested during violent protests on Georgia Tech’s West campus in Midtown Atlanta on Monday night. Several hundred students attended a peaceful vigil for 21- year-old Scout Schultz, a 4th year computer engineering student who was gunned down by a campus police officer late Saturday.
Police say about 50 people left the vigil and began marching toward the campus police station, shouting anti-police slogans.
One officer was injured and a police cruiser was set on fire by a flare during the violence.
Police arrested three people identified as Jacob Wilson, pictured left, Cassandra Monden, center, and Vincent Castillenti.
The Fulton County Sheriff’s office identified Monden as a biological male named Andrew Xavier Monden. He was charged with a felony count of interference with government property, and inciting to riot.
Monden is seen in cell phone videos being chased and tackled to the street by cops, as other protesters shout “Don’t touch her!” (watch video below).
Schultz was president of Georgia Tech’s Pride Alliance, which organized last night’s vigil.
Schultz, who was born a male, suffered from depression, Gender Dysphoria, and other mental illnesses. He identified as bisexual, non-binary and intersex and referred to himself in the third person as “them”, “their” and “they,” according to his mother Lynne.
3 suicide notes were recovered from his dorm room after the shooting.
