(MOBILE, Ala.) A friend who admits to being on LSD with Gil Collar Friday night says this may have been Collar's first time using the drug.
"First or second time, we're not really clear on that," said Vincent Anderson.
Anderson also says, at this time, he's not revealing who sold Gil Collar the drugs.
"Before I let any of my friends or myself take the fall for this, I will drop a name. But until then, my lips are sealed because I don't want anymore pain caused on anyone else's family," he said.
On Wednesday, Mobile County Sheriff Sam Cochran told reporters his department is actively looking for that person.
"If we can determine who may have provided that substance to him, we of course would like to pursue charges against that individual which could result in murder charges against that individual," said Sheriff Cochran.
Anderson was with Collar early Saturday morning when campus officer Trevis Austin shot Collar in the chest.
"I heard the officer start screaming, 'Get on the ground, get on the ground,'" said Anderson.
He also heard the fatal gun shot as he was running toward the police station. When he arrived, Collar was lying on the ground, dead.
"It's the worst thing that's ever happened to me. But then again it's the best thing that's ever happened to me because he saved my life," said Anderson.
Saved his life, by forcing him to reevaluate his life. Anderson admits that he and five others, including Collar, were on LSD that night.
"Up until that night I had never done acid," said Anderson.
But Anderson says other drugs have been a part of his life since he was 13.
"This happening truly puts it into perspective, like, the risks that we take everyday having the fun that we have," he said.
In honor of Gil Collar, Anderson says he's committing to change.
"Some of the friends we were there with, it wasn't their first time doing acid and they definitely didn't plan on it being their last time to do LSD, but they won't do it again. None of them will. We don't want to be around it," said Anderson.
Because they saw first hand a deadly consequence.
"Gil didn't want to do anything for himself he just always wanted to help other people. And in the first 48 hours of his passing he probably helped more people than any of us ever will," said Anderson.
