(NEWSER) – A student at a Christian university was shot dead on Friday for allegedly resisting arrest, but fellow students are struggling to believe the official story, CNNreports. It goes like this: Robert Redus, a student at the University of the Incarnate Word in Alamo Heights, was "driving erratically at a high rate of speed" near campus. When police officer Christopher Carter confronted him in an apartment complex, the student resisted arrest, grabbed his baton, and "used it to hit the officer," according to the university. Carter pulled his gun and knocked the baton away, but when Redus kept resisting arrest, "shots were fired."
