    I've been on that campus many times and kids come from all directions there.  Unless the police had the entire perimeter secure they could not have known that no one would be at risk.  

    I'm not saying that they made the correct decision to shoot the kid.  I don't know that.  But many commenting on this thread and others don't have a sufficient perspective on the layout of the campus and how central this area is to surrounding buildings and foot traffic through the campus.
