Gil Collar Laid to Rest in Wetumpka, After Being Shot and Killed by Campus Officer


By Heather VacLav

The University of South Alabama freshman who was killed by a campus police officer was laid to rest Saturday.

The funeral for 18-year old Gil Collar was held a few miles away from his Wetumpka home at Mulder Memorial United Methodist Church.

Collar was shot one week ago after going to the campus police station nude and unarmed. Police say he was under the influence of LSD and pounding on the windows.

A prosecutor says grand jurors will review the shooting and alleged drug involvement for possible charges.
