Texas Tech University Identifies Police Officer Killed in Monday's Shooting

Local law enforcement mourning the loss of a brother in blue

According to an arrest-warrant affidavit, Daniels - who was not wearing handcuffs - was standing near an officer in the department's briefing room while he completed paperwork for Daniels' arrest.

The suspect admitted to officers that he was the one who shot East and said he did something "illogical".

Texas passed a law a year ago allowing students with concealed carry permits to bring guns into university classrooms and buildings.

In a press conference, Texas Tech President Lawrence Schovanec was tight-lipped on the investigation but sent his deepest condolences to the East family.

Police are looking into how Daniels gained access to a gun since he was too young to even possess a handgun in the state of Texas.

Questions remain to be answered in the fatal shooting of Texas Tech Police Officer Floyd East Jr. But a person must be at least 21 years old to get a concealed carry permit in Texas, so Daniels wouldn't qualify. He said the law was designed for risky incidents on college campuses because it gives licensed gun owners the ability to defend themselves and their peers.

Officers received complaints about a student acting erratically and possibly having a weapon.

Breast Cancer Awareness event at Hillside
More than 70, 000 women succumb to breast cancer every year - a woman dies of breast cancer every 10 minutes in India. While it may be some way off, the prospect of probiotic use in breast cancer is making some interesting headway.

Police said Daniels confessed to shooting the officer when he was apprehended.

Michael Newbern, a spokesman for the gun-rights advocacy group Students for Concealed Carry, disagreed. On the other hand, The Houston Chronicle reported an instance of a professor at a public university in Texas moving office hours to a public space out of concerns of being alone with a student who might be carrying.

Monday night Daniels was arrested by East for possession of a controlled substance found in his dorm room. It wasn't clear whether the chief meant they called the center before or after East was shot, and school officials didn't respond to messages seeking additional details.

"So the bad guys are going to go get the guns", Arrington said.

"These kinds of preventable deaths are part of the litany of tragedies that are smaller scale than mass shootings, but part of the everyday fabric of this country's abundant gun culture", she said in an email. "Are you ready?'" Smith said, adding that several people acknowledged they had concealed weapons.

Sue Riesling, executive director of the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators, said that the association did not see a link between campus carry and Monday's shooting. "The question is if we only want the ones that are there to be illegal".

Daniels then led officers on a pursuit across campus, according to Bonath.
