Suspect arrested after fatal shooting of campus police officer at Texas Tech

TTU students leaving notes of support

Another officer in the room left and then heard a loud bang, the affidavit states.

It was only during the search for Daniels that the school's counseling center revealed that his family had called to say he was making comments about suicide and were anxious he had a weapon, Bonath explained.

The other cop returned to find East with a gunshot wound and noticed that his body camera was gone but his service weapon was still in his holster, authorities said. Texas's campus carry law was adopted against the wishes of higher education leaders in the state, who argued that colleges are safer when police officers are the only ones armed. East leaves behind his wife, Carmen, and two daughters, Anna and Monica.

Daniels reportedly told officers "that he was the one that shot their friend", according to the arrest warrant and revealed in a later interview that he messed up and did "something illogical". He is being held on a $5 million bond.

Students, faculty, and staff gathered at the Texas Tech Memorial Circle.to lay flowers, lights, candles, and pray.

"I went to the people who nodded and said, 'I suggest you keep your weapons concealed, because if the police enter, they won't be able to tell the difference between a good guy and a bad one'". It was something that has been his dream since he can remember.

President Vladimir Putin , who first invited the king to Moscow more than two years ago, hailed the visit as a "landmark event". The S-400 is a very capable missile-defense system, somewhat comparable to the US's MIM-104 Patriot, according to CSIS.

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. At least 50 people were killed and over 200 others wounded in a mass shooting at a concert Sunday night outside of the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. We also have some officers that are former with the Texas Tech Police Department, so they have a great connection with them.

Questions remain to be answered in the fatal shooting of Texas Tech Police Officer Floyd East Jr.

Gov. Greg Abbott issued a statement expressing his condolences and saying he had mobilized state law enforcement resources to aid in the investigation.

We know from Tuesday's news conference at Texas Tech University that Daniels' mother called the university on Monday, anxious her son may be suicidal and have a weapon.

The Odessa and Midland Police Departments have a close working relationship with the police department in Lubbock. "As the Texas Tech campus deals with this heartbreaking tragedy, Cecilia and I pray for the continued safety of the students and the entire community", he said.
