MOBILE, Ala. -- The University of South Alabama and its police chief are asking a court to dismiss a lawsuit filed over the shooting death of a naked student on campus.
 
Both the school and university police chief Zeke Aull claim they can't be sued under state law for the October shooting death of freshman Gil Collar.

A university police officer killed 18-year-old Collar in October. The parents of the freshman from Wetumpka filed the lawsuit over the killing last month.
 
A judge has scheduled a hearing for Feb. 8 in Mobile.
 
Authorities say the 5-foot-7, 140-pound Collar was on LSD when he moved aggressively toward the officer in an athletic stance, prompting the shooting. But surveillance video shows the student never tried to grab the officer's weapon or got within 4 or 5 feet of him.
