New details emerging in Texas Tech shooting case

New details emerging in Texas Tech shooting case

While they were alone, Daniels is believed to have pulled a gun out and "fatally wounded the officer with a single shot", Cook said, then fled.

At around 9pm ET, Texas Tech's twitter account tweeted an emergency update urging students to "shelter in place", as the campus was placed on lockdown.

"The truth is, like millions of Americans, we're frustrated", the Texas Democratic Party said in a statement.

Last August, Senate Bill 11, known as the "campus carry" law, took effect, allowing anyone in the state with a license to carry to bring concealed handguns into most buildings on college campuses.

Authorities say Hollis Daniels III fatally shot officer Floyd East Jr. while being booked on a drug possession charge.

Daniels was arrested and brought to the Texas Tech Police Department.

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.

Police said Daniels confessed to shooting the officer when he was apprehended.

19th District Congressman Jodey Arrington who represent Lubbock along with Young and Throckmorton counties said this is not a time for a gun control debate.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott echoed the sentiments, saying "hearts go out to the family of the police officer killed". "And to have a tragedy like this clearly affects us all".

Neighbors had nice things to say about the Daniels family, but it's clear to many that something went terribly wrong. "We're exhausted of seeing Americans die".

A 19-year-old student at a West Texas university has been charged with capital murder of a peace officer in the shooting of a campus officer at the school's police headquarters.

"Before Aug. 1, 2016, this would be a felony", he said.

UTPD's Chief Carter got the call from his friends in the law enforcement community Tuesday evening about the shooting. The safety of our staff, faculty and students is our first concern. More than a dozen had at least one gun-related report, including aggravated robbery and an accidental discharge in a dorm.

Mia Carter, an associate professor of English at the University of Texas, Austin, and one of the plaintiffs in a now-dismissed lawsuit aimed to stop the campus carry law from going into effect, said that campus carry and the US gun laws as a whole are intertwined.

"So the bad guys are going to go get the guns", Arrington said.

Sue Riesling, executive director of the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators, said that the association did not see a link between campus carry and Monday's shooting. It is our job to protect our students, employees, and visitors.
