Transcript for 2 police officers injured in protests at Georgia Tech
What happened at this campus police station behind me was not the work of the peaceful demonstrators marching in the streets last night but people who were here who we know tell us instead what happened was the result of outsiders who came here itching to fight with campus police. The protests over a police shooting death at Georgia tech turned violent overnight. It's not clear if the people who broke from the crowd and attacked campus police were even students but they torched this campus police car and wounded two Georgia tech officers who had to be hospitalized.

Reporter: Students on campus were outraged and upset after the shooting seen in this cell phone video. 21-year-old scout Schultz a fourth year computer engineering major was killed Saturday after police responded to calls that someone was outside a residence hall with a knife and a gun. Police say that Schultz was suicidal and was the one who made that call to 911. And in the cell phone video you hear him tell police to shoot him. No, drop the gun. Reporter: His parents say it's clear in the video their son was having a mental breakdown and say the officer who shot him overreacted. He was having a mental health crisis so you have to expect him to not follow orders. There's a huge gaping hole in our family without Scott. Reporter: Scott was the head of Georgia pride alliance, an lgbt group on campus. In a statement overnight the family asked that those who wish to protest scout's death do so peacefully. Answering violence with violence is not the answer. Scout's family tells us scout tried to kill himself a few years ago on campus and has been on medication and in treatment since so this is a lot more complicated, the shooting. They want officers here to have tasers and not just guns. ING 0, Steve, thanks very much. Michael. All right, George, coming up apple's CEO Tim cook one-on-one
