Texas Tech shooting suspected indicted on federal firearms charge
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - The 19-year-old Texas Tech University student charged with murder in the shooting death of a campus police officer used a gun he brought into the police station. According to the NRA's website, Texas only honors licenses and permits of individuals who are 21 years of age or older. The party had tweeted that allowing guns on college campuses "was a dumb and risky idea" but later backtracked and deleted the tweet.
East, 48, had worked since May as an officer at the Lubbock campus. Bonath said police were responding to a report of a student acting erratically and possibly in possession of a weapon.
Detective Thomas Bonds of the Lubbock City Police Department told reporters Daniels wasn't handcuffed, but another officer was in the room as East was filing out paperwork.
The student fled the station, prompting a lockdown of the school for nearly an hour Monday night.
The Texas Tech officer was killed by a student Monday night.
A university held a memorial service for East Tuesday, where thousands of students, faculty and community members came to pay their respects.
The officer has left behind a wife and two daughters.
Lack of developer support hits Windows 10 Mobile prospects
Belfiore said Microsoft tried "very hard" to provide incentives for app developers to get their apps onto Windows Mobile. A major shortfall in the life of Windows Mobile has been the lack of apps which compelled users to move away.
Universities can put some regulations in place regarding campus carry, including ones regarding dorms.
Daniels was recaptured near the campus. "The question isn't whether or not there are guns on campus". "We're exhausted of hearing "thoughts and prayers" from politicians who avoid conversations about real solutions to our nation's gun violence epidemic".
Neighbors had nice things to say about the Daniels family, but it's clear to many that something went terribly wrong. However, the Democratic Party also said that gun-control advocacy is still a critical issue. "After Aug. 1, it is still a felonious act to have an unlicensed weapon on campus, to carry a weapon on campus that's unlicensed". A police body camera was also located near where Hollis Daniels was arrested. More than a dozen had at least one gun-related report, including aggravated robbery and an accidental discharge in a dorm.
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 US gun laws as a whole are intertwined. "Are you ready?'" Smith said, adding that several people acknowledged they had concealed weapons.
Although he's a registered gun owner, Smith said he has been a vocal opponent of the "campus carry" law because of incidents like Monday's shooting. "The question is if we only want the ones that are there to be illegal".
