College Police Officer Shoots Student Dead After Traffic Stop

In San Antonio


Just before University of the Incarnate Word senior Robert Cameron Redus was fatally shot in a struggle with a UIW police officer Friday morning, a neighbor overheard what may have been his last words.

"I heard (a man) say, 'Oh, you're gonna shoot me?' like sarcastic almost," said Mohammad Haidarasl, 22, who was on his couch in his ground-floor unit at the Treehouse Apartments in Alamo Heights at about 2 a.m.

Less than a minute later, Haidarasl heard four to six gunshots.

"I jumped up and hid in my closet," he said.

        That’s the (non eye-)witness. The student shot dead had a nice WASP-sounding name.
