Bonath said that Texas Tech police received a report of a possibly armed student acting erratically, and sent two officers to Daniels' dorm room.
The party originally made a post on Twitter condemning campus carry laws in the wake of the incident, but later deleted the tweet and apologized when it became clear that Daniels's possession of his firearm on campus was likely illegal.
The Lubbock Police Department, which is now leading the investigation, has confirmed investigators do not believe the suspect, Hollis Daniels III, used the officer's weapon in the shooting of Floyd East Jr. East conducted a student welfare check Monday evening and found evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia. East leaves behind his wife, Carmen, and two daughters, Anna and Monica.
At this point, it's still unclear if the suspect was searched prior to entering the police station, why he wasn't handcuffed and if the gun was his or one that belonged to the department.

Bonath said that the Texas Tech counseling center got a call earlier on Monday from Daniels' family saying he may have a weapon and be suicidal.

Newbern said that in the aftermath of a shooting, licensed and responsible gun owners are often unfairly lumped with violent criminals.
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. Corporal Snelson observed Officer XXXX facing the computers while Hollis Daniels was facing in the opposite direction. Another officer left the room and heard a bang. Corporal Snelson went back into the briefing where he saw Officer XXXX with an apparent gunshot wound. Daniels and the officer's body camera were gone. Police found a loaded.45-caliber pistol and a police body camera nearby.
