SAN ANTONIO — Family and friends of University of the Incarnate Word student Robert Cameron Redus gather for a candlelight vigil and tribute - Saturday, December 7, 2013. The ceremony included many remembrances from friends in the UIW community. A candlelight vigil was also held on campus at the Lourdes Grotto. Redus, 23, was shot and killed by UIW police officer Cpl. Chris Carter during a Friday morning traffic stop just off Broadway Street, according to Alamo Heights Police Department. Investigators said the UIW officer attempted to pull Redus over for ‘driving erratically’. When Redus pulled over at an apartment complex off Broadway, police said Redus got out of his truck and allegedly attacked Carter. A struggle ensued between the officer and Redus before Carter opened fire and fatally shot the student, police said. In a statement from the university, Cpl. Carter has an ‘extensive law-enforcement background’ and has been employed with UIW for several years. He has been placed on administrative leave while an investigation is conducted.
