Two years ago, 18-year-old Gil Collar was shot and killed by campus police at the University of South Alabama, where he was a freshman student. Evidence later indicated Gil was disoriented, naked and unarmed, and likely seeking help. The tragedy sparked a firestorm on campus, raising issues of student safety and police training and procedures. Today, Gil’s parents, Reed and Bonnie, are still struggling to understand what happened to their son. Beasley Allen principal Ben Locklar, along with Charlie Potts and Josh Briskman of the Briskman & Binion firm in Mobile, is working with the family to uncover the facts. The law firm has filed a federal civil lawsuit to move the discovery process forward.
