Schultz died early Sunday after a Georgia Tech Police officer shot Schultz outside a dormitory on West Campus, according to authorities. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has opened a review of the shooting.

"Scout lived a big, important life that connected Georgia Tech to the rest of Atlanta and understand that their loss affects the broader community," said Nikola Garcia, a Georgia Tech student who knew Schultz. 

Organizers of Friday's protest originally planned to create a space for collective grieving inside a Georgia Tech building, however, the buildings were closed and police could be seen manning the entrances.

A Georgia Tech spokesperson would not directly address the building closures, but said in a statement that campus security has increased since violence broke out after a vigil on Monday. 

Protestors marched through the campus and clashed with police, injuring two officers and setting fire to a GTPD vehicle.
