In an affidavit released Tuesday, Det. Daniels' roommate also said that the 19-year-old was showing "odd behavior", Cook added.

It's unclear whether Daniels has obtained an attorney.

How did the 19-year-old shooter have a gun?

Mia Carter, an associate professor of English at the University of Texas, Austin, and one of the plaintiffs in a now-dismissed lawsuit aimed to stop the campus carry law from going into effect, said that campus carry and the USA gun laws as a whole are intertwined. "The folks who are willing to do this and prepare and commit crime and shoot people are going to get the means to do that".

"I want to express my deep appreciation to the Texas Tech Police Department, Lubbock Police Department, Lubbock Sherriff's Office, and other state and federal law enforcement officials for their response", Schovanec said.

An arrest warrant provided new details Tuesday morning into the murder.

Quinn Cox, a junior at the University of Texas, Austin, and the Southwest region director for Students for Concealed Carry, said that conversations about campus carry were irrelevant to Monday's shooting, since Daniels was afoul of the law, having a firearm in his dorm under the circumstances he did.

"During this time the student pulled a gun and fatally shot officer East", said Chief of Police Kyle Bonath.

Bonath said that during the lockdown, the university's counseling center told police that Daniels' family had called to say he might be suicidal and have a gun. Schovanec said East was married with two young daughters.

We know from Tuesday's news conference at Texas Tech University that Daniels' mother called the university on Monday, anxious her son may be suicidal and have a weapon.

The deceased officer has been identified as Floyd East Jr.

Daniels wasn't handcuffed, and East was filling out paperwork.

"I walked past his room and I saw the officers there". Corporal Snelson observed Officer XXXX facing the computers while Hollis Daniels was facing in the opposite direction. He also didn't say whether East checked Daniels for weapons when arresting him, and he didn't take questions. Another officer reported leaving the room then hearing a bang. A-J Media has requested body camera footage of the arrest to see if Daniels was searched prior to being taken in. The police report only states Daniels was arrested for possession of a controlled substance following a student welfare check. Hollis Daniels stated to officers that he was the one that shot their friend.

Is it the department's policy to take the handcuffs off of a suspect during a briefing?
