Police Officer Shot and Killed

Wednesday, 11 Oct, 2017

Authorities have said Daniels wasn't handcuffed at the time.

Bonath was not clear about when the counselling centre called police.

Daniels had what appeared to be his first run-in with law enforcement during his senior year, when he was charged in September 2015 with possession of drug paraphernalia and pleaded no contest to the Class C misdemeanor.

Hollis Daniels has been charged twice previously with possession of drugs or drug paraphernalia, according to the news service.

Texas is one of 10 states that allow guns on campus at public universities.

As news of the shooting was breaking late Monday, the Texas Democrats' Twitter account posted, "Allowing concealed guns on college campuses was a dumb and unsafe idea". Daniels would have to be 21 years old at least and have no felony convictions according to laws put in place by GOV. Greg Abbott in 2016, Fox News reported.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the Texas Democratic Party deputy executive director Manny Garcia apologized for the tweet, which has been deleted.

The campus itself was placed in lockdown whilst the campus police, working with Lubbock County Sheriffs and the SWAT team attempted to find the suspect.

It was revealed by police this morning that Hollis Daniels, however, was not old enough to have a concealed-carry firearm. When the officer returned to the briefing room, he found East with a gunshot wound and Daniels gone. East's body camera was taken.

Hollis A. Daniels is seen in a police booking photo at the Lubbock County Detention Centre in Lubbock, Tex., on October 10, 2017. Bonds says he had the body camera and a handgun. During a later interview with Lubbock police detectives, Daniels said he "f--ed up" and did "something illogical", the affidavit said.

Paxton said in a statement that he'll be in Lubbock on Tuesday "to offer the entire support" of his office.

"We're a massive campus of over 40,000, yet suddenly something like this happens and we all come together like a small town community and unite", said Matthew Koehl a student from San Antonio.

He's now been charged with capital murder of a peace officer.

Daniels attended Seguin High School, and an April 2016 school newsletter includes a photo of him, beaming along with his fellow student thespians and theater crew as they celebrated advancing to district in a UIL competition.

As police searched for the suspect, Mackenzie's parents sat at home in Denison, praying for her safety. He was later spotted by university police. The students, uninformed and afraid, waited for updates as the suspect fled from police and federal agents on foot.

According to Chris Cook, at around 7:45 PM on Monday when #Campus Police were called to the freshman's dorm room on a welfare check, officers found drugs and related paraphernalia in his room. Officers then brought the suspect to the police station. East is survived by a wife and two daughters, Bonath said. The suspect was later apprehended near the Lubbock Municipal Coliseum.
