    Two officers were injured and a police SUV was torched following a candlelight vigil Monday night for a student killed by a campus police officer over the weekend. Three people have been arrested.

    It happened near the corner of Hemphill Ave NW near the Georgia Tech Police headquarters just after 9:30 p.m. Campus officials said about 50 people marched from the vigil to the police department.

    Two officers were injured, one was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital, but officials said they both should be okay. A police SUV was also set on fire.

    "The Atlanta Police Department and Georgia State University Police Department helped restore order relatively quickly. Georgia Tech police arrested Vincent Castillenti, Jacob Wilson, and Cassandra Monden. All three were charged with inciting a riot and battery of an officer," read a statement from university officials.

    "Multiple people who attended made it clear it wasn't Georgia Tech protesters it was people outside of Georgia Tech," said witness Kris Harris. "It's so unnecessary."

    University officials were not able to comment Monday evening on if the three people taken into custody were students.

    Shortly after the violence erupted, campus police issued the following alert to students:

    "Seek shelter in a secure location until further notice. Lock all doors and windows. Take Immediate Action Now!"

    Students: Please stay inside. Until we give you the all clear, please remain off GT streets. If you are off campus, stay off campus.

    -- GTPDalerts (@GTPDalerts) September 19, 2017

    The alert was lifted just after 11 p.m.

    The incident followed a vigil for Scott "Scout" Schultz, 21, who died early Sunday after a Georgia Tech Police officer shot the student outside a dormitory on West Campus, according to authorities

    Several social media posts show a Georgia Tech Police SUV, its front doors open, and fire coming from the front seats. Flames in another video can be seen shooting up 20 to 30 feet high.

    A few videos show at least one young person being restrained by an officer after briefly running from an officer, but it was not immediately clear if the person was involved.

    FOX 5 News crews, covering the vigil for Schultz, arrived shortly after the vehicle fire was extinguished. A heavier police presence was also seen on the campus.

    Atlanta Police confirmed their department was asked to send units to the area to help provide additional security following the fire.

    The attorney for the Schultz family, L. Chris Stewart issued the following statement Monday night regarding the incident:

    "On behalf of the family of Scout Schultz, we ask that those who wish to protest Scout's death do so peacefully. Answering violence with violence is not the answer. Our goal is to work diligently to make positive change at Georgia Tech in an effort to ensure a safer campus for all students.

    "This is how we will truly honor Scout's life and legacy.

    "Scout's family respects the rights of those who wish to voice opposition to what they feel was an unnecessary use of force, but they ask that it be done respectfully and safely."
