    NC - Courtland Smith UNC Frat President Shot by police

    http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/5853180/

    He was president of DKE.

    Apparently he called 911 and told them he was driving down 85 and was thinking of killing himself.

    Sad.

    My prayers are with his family and his UNC family/friends.






    ETA I should have said fraternity, sorry... I don't mean frat as derogatory.

    I heard this on the news last night- so sad. He seemed like a great guy who had a lot going for him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

    My thoughts are with his family, friends AND the police officer who shot him. I've heard of this happening before. What is it called? Suicide by cop? Here's an explanation (I know it's wikipedia but it seems to explain it well).

    This has gotten more interesting the more I keep up with it.

    He told the 911 dispatcher he had a gun.

    There was no gun found on him.

    911 call is going to be a lot of help to defend the LE in this case. Kid was smashed when he called 911.

    I feel really sorry for his family and the LEs in this case.
