Local Texas Tech student describes terror on campus after fatal shooting

"Words can't express how saddened I am by the tragic loss of one of our Texas Tech University police officers tonight", Texas Tech University System Chancellor Robert Duncan said.

Det. Thomas Bonds of the Lubbock city police department says in an affidavit released Tuesday that 19-year-old Hollis Daniels III wasn't handcuffed while campus police officer Floyd East Jr. was processing him Monday.

"The sadness and tragedy a moment like this are made more bearable by the love and the care that our student's staff and faculty have shown to the family of officer east to our police and to one another".

Daniels' records posted online by the Lubbock County Jail did not list an attorney.

University officials say East had gone to Daniels' room for a welfare check and found evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Other critics noted that concealed carry permit holders must be 21 or older, and the suspected shooter, Hollis Daniels, is 19.

In response to the law, three professors at the University of Texas at Austin sued their school and the state, claiming that the new campus carry law was unconstitutional, violating academic freedom.

"Our hearts go out to our fellow officers and the entire community at Texas Tech". Another officer left the room and heard a bang.

Bonath said that Texas Tech police received a report of a possibly armed student acting erratically, and sent two officers to Daniels' dorm room. He rushed back into the room and found East mortally wounded and Daniels missing.

In the year or so since Texas first allowed guns on campus, many university officials across the state have said that the law has not caused any problems.

While law enforcement searched for the suspect who fatally shot a Texas Tech police officer, the school's counseling center told campus police that the student's family was concerned he may have a weapon and spoken of suicide, university police Chief Kyle Bonath said.

After a search that lasted almost two hours Daniels was arrested on campus near City Bank Coliseum.

Authorities say Daniels is from Seguin (sih-GEEN'), just east of San Antonio. He began working for the university's El Paso campus in 2014. The officers noticed drug paraphernalia in the room before Daniels arrived, he said.

While at the station, Cook said the suspect pulled out a gun and shot an officer in the head, killing him.

Additional information was not immediately available.
