Suspect in Texas campus officer killing captured
LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech University officials say a student sought in the shooting death of a campus police officer at police headquarters has been captured.
University officials issued an alert around 9:35 p.m. Monday saying they've lifted a campus lockdown that was ordered after the shooting. No other details were immediately given.
A university statement identified the suspect as 19-year-old Hollis Daniels.

During this time, Cook says the suspect pulled out a gun and shot an officer in the head, killing him.
