Original Story:

A Texas Tech University police officer was shot and killed at the Texas Tech Police Headquarters Monday night, Lubbock police say.

The shooting reportedly took place around 8:00 p.m after a student was brought in to the police department for a standard debriefing after a welfare check revealed he had evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia in his room. While inside the police station, the student pulled a gun and shot the officer in the head, according to a statement released by the university.

The suspect, 19-year-old freshman Hollis A. Daniels, is still at large and the Texas Tech campus is on lockdown and students and faculty have been told to take shelter.
