Police Officer Shot and Killed

Police Officer Shot and Killed

Bonath said that the Texas Tech counselling centre got a call earlier on Monday from Daniels' family saying he may have a weapon and be suicidal.

That referred to a law that took effect previous year allowing Texans with concealed carry permits to bring guns into university classrooms and buildings. Daniels and the officer's body camera were gone.

Hollis Daniels, 19, was being booked into jail at TTU's police station for evading arrest after drugs and drug paraphernalia were allegedly found in his dorm room. During the search, Daniels showed up to the room and was found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia, Bonath said. The student then pulled out a gun and shot the officer in the head before fleeing the station on foot. Officers then brought the suspect to the police station for standard debriefing.

On October 9, 2017 Hollis Daniels was arrested by Texas Tech Police Department Officer XXXXX XXXX for possession of a control substance.

Texas Tech student Hollis Daniels, 19, has been charged with the capital murder of police officer Floyd East Jr.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with his family", Bonath said.

The American flag will also fly at half-staff, to pay respect for the fallen officer at the Texas Tech campus Monday night.

Universities can put some regulations in place regarding campus carry, including ones regarding dorms.

"Turns out he was running right by our building with a loaded gun", Mackenzie said.

Texas Democratic Party Deputy Executive Director Manny Garcia said in a statement Tuesday that "our words were inadequate, hurried and we apologize", adding that the tweet has been removed. "We're exhausted of hearing "thoughts and prayers" from politicians who avoid conversations about real solutions to our nation's gun violence epidemic". However, the Democratic Party also said that gun-control advocacy is still a critical issue.

School officials say campus police took a 19-year-old student into custody after conducting a welfare check Monday and finding evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia in the student's room. "And to have a tragedy like this clearly affects us all". "We're exhausted of seeing Americans die". "After Aug. 1, it is still a felonious act to have an unlicensed weapon on campus, to carry a weapon on campus that's unlicensed". The safety of our staff, faculty and students is our first concern. The student was reported to have a weapon.

Lone Star College Police Chief Paul Willingham, speaking to the Houston Chronicle, called those incidents "rare".

Texas is one of 10 states that allow guns on campus at public universities.

"So the bad guys are going to go get the guns", Arrington said. They don't belong on campus.

"Regardless of whether the state or this institution had a policy one way or another, if the individual possessed a firearm, he would have been possessing it illegally", she said. He was apprehended on campus and no other injuries have been recorded at this time. It is our job to protect our students, employees, and visitors.
