UPDATE: A suspect in the shooting death of a Texas Tech campus police officer is in custody. This from lubbockonline.com:
Police have confirmed alleged shooter, Hollis Daniels, has been taken into custody after reportedly killing a Texas Tech Police officer during a shooting that left the university campus on lockdown on Monday night.
Officials have identified Daniels as a 19-year-old white male from Seguin, and a freshman at Texas Tech.
With campus now carry legal in the state of Texas, this incident will almost surely raise questions about the policy. It should be noted, though, that as Daniels is reported to be 19 years old, he’s too young to have a concealed carry permit, and therefore couldn’t have been legally carrying on the Texas Tech campus under state law.
After earlier reports of a shooting at the Texas Tech University campus police department in Lubbock, this report comes in from 10news.com:
