March 31 (UPI) -- Police at Columbus State University in Georgia say a young man shot and killed by an officer was holding a gun.

But a lawyer representing the family of Zikarious Jaquan Flint, 20, said some witnesses gave a different account of the shooting Sunday afternoon in a dormitory area.

"I have interviewed five people who saw certain parts of the transaction," Stacey Jackson told WTVM-TV. "Three of the five actually saw the shooting. All three stated that Flint was running away when he was shot and did not have any type of weapon in his hand when he was shot twice."
