DA expecting toxicology report on slain student

Tools

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — The Mobile County district attorney says she hopes to have a toxicology report by the end of the week on a University of South Alabama student who was shot and killed by a campus police officer.

District Attorney Ashley Rich told al.com (http://bit.ly/Ru8tXC ) that she asked the state Department of Forensic Sciences to expedite the report. She said the department had to send samples to an independent lab because the state lab doesn't test for bath salts, synthetic marijuana or LSD.

Mobile Count Sheriff Sam Cochran said last month his department's investigation indicated 18-year-old Gil Collar was on LSD on Oct. 6 when he went to the campus police station nude and pounded on a window. Officer Trevis Austin went outside to investigate and ended up shooting Collar.
