Local law enforcement mourning the loss of a brother in blue
At the brief news conference, during which Bonath and university President Lawrence Schovanec did not take questions, it was not addressed how Daniels was able to bring a gun inside the police station, or why he wasn't handcuffed - questions being raised by many in Texas. A-J Media has requested body camera footage of the arrest to see if Daniels was searched prior to being taken in.
Was Officer East warned that Daniels may have been armed as he went to make that welfare check? "Today is a time for us to mourn and reflect as we stand together to not only honor the courageous officer but also to honor the men and women who risk their lives every day".
Texas Tech Police Chief Kyle Bonath said when the suspect was still at-large, police were informed by the counseling center that Daniels' family called to express concerns Daniels may be in possession of a weapon and may be suicidal. The law applies to those 21 or older, and he did not have a concealed-carry permit.
The suspect admitted to officers that he was the one who shot East and said he did something "illogical".
Hollis Daniels, 19, confessed to killing Officer Floyd East Jr. and told investigators that "he was the one that shot their friend" Monday night, according to an arrest affidavit. Texas Tech spokesman Chris Cook said that Talkington Hall, where Daniels lived, was one of the four dorms where campus carry is permitted, although gun owners are required to register their firearms with the university, which Daniels didn't do.
Neighbors had nice things to say about the Daniels family, but it's clear to many that something went terribly wrong. "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". East, 48, joined the department as a guard at the El Paso office in 2015 and became an officer in May.
Christopher Smith, a professor of musicology at Texas Tech, said he believed concealed handguns had no place on college campuses, whether they were licensed or not.
It was only during the search for Daniels that the school's counseling center revealed that his family had called to say he was making comments about suicide and were anxious he had a weapon, Bonath explained. "Our students and young people need support, they need readily available mental health services; they deserve safe spaces on campus and in the classroom in which they can bloom and grow, can fearlessly develop their own values and scholarly and intellectual passions".
The state Democratic Party apologized Tuesday for a tweet it sent linking the campus carry law to Monday's shooting.
Newbern said that in the aftermath of a shooting, licensed and responsible gun owners are often unfairly lumped with violent criminals.
Daniels then led officers on a pursuit across campus, according to Bonath.
