Ryan McMillan was shot dead after he was shot by a campus cop at UNT on his 21st birthday. McMillan was carrying around an ax and using it to smash car windows in a parking lot near campus. He approached the campus cop with blood on his shirt and was then shot between four to six times.
The cop has been placed on leave while an investigation on the incident takes place. UNT President Neal Smatresk said it had been a “tragic day for our university family.” McMilan was a sophomore hospitality major who had transferred from Weatherford College.
