ARCHDALE, N.C. — Police in North Carolina say an officer shot and killed a college student after a confrontation in Archdale.

Archdale police say the student died early Sunday morning after a confrontation following a traffic stop on Interstate 85 south of Greensboro. A police report states the male student in his early 20s first telephoned police and “indicated that he was suicidal.”

The name of the student, from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, has not been released by authorities.

Authorities did not detail the nature of the confrontation. The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation is handling the case.

A spokeswoman for UNC-Chapel Hill said the school was aware of a student’s death but had no other details.
