Texas Tech student accused of killing campus police officer

In an affidavit released Tuesday, Det.

Hollis Daniels, 19, grew up in Seguin, Texas just half an hour away from New Braunsfels.

The party originally made a post on Twitter condemning campus carry laws in the wake of the incident, but later deleted the tweet and apologized when it became clear that Daniels's possession of his firearm on campus was likely illegal.

How did the 19-year-old shooter have a gun? "You want your own son to act like that".

A community comes together to mourn the loss of a campus police officer who was shot and killed.

The shooting death of a Texas Tech University police officer has renewed the debate over a controversial state law that allows students and faculty to carry concealed handguns on campus.

Newbern said that in the aftermath of a shooting, licensed and responsible gun owners are often unfairly lumped with violent criminals. "The folks who are willing to do this and prepare and commit crime and shoot people are going to get the means to do that".

Hopefully some of these questions will be answered at the Lubbock Police Department news conference about the shooting, Thursday at 9:30 a.m. East conducted a student welfare check Monday evening and found evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia. The warrant said he was taken to the station for paperwork.

Steiner said he is a hunter who has no problem with guns, generally, but that he did not believe they are appropriate in every setting. East leaves behind his wife, Carmen, and two daughters, Anna and Monica.

Texas Tech Police Chief Kyle Bonath said when the suspect was still at-large, police were informed by the counseling center that Daniels' family called to express concerns Daniels may be in possession of a weapon and may be suicidal. The officer was identified as Floyd East Jr.in a press conference today.

But his use of the weapon - shooting an officer who was questioning him about drugs allegedly discovered in his room - is an example of how the proliferation of weapons on campus is likely to play out. The report said Daniels was not wearing handcuffs. There, Daniels was left alone with an officer in a room. Corporal Snelson went back into the briefing where he saw Officer XXXX with an apparent gunshot wound. Cook said multiple officers tackled Daniels and apprehended him, and he was then transported to the Lubbock Police Department, where he remained on Tuesday.

Hollis Daniels was located near 2720 Drive of Champions, City Bank Coliseum, where he was subsequently taken into custody, A.45 caliber pistol loaded with RP ammunition was located where Hollis Daniels was arrested.
