(Reuters) - A person was shot on Monday at the Texas Tech University police division in Lubbock and the campus was placed on lockdown, according to police and a Twitter message from the university.

A special weapons and tactics (SWAT) team was dispatched to look for the suspect, who was still at large, Lubbock police Officer J. Rodgers said by phone. He confirmed that one person was shot at the school's police division but declined to immediately provide any other details.

Hopefully they catch this one alive and he doesn't injure or kill anyone else.

And it's really sad that I'm not even surprised by this anymore.

Since he's described as red hair and blue eyes, that ought to give you a clue what color his skin likely is, but we're also talking cop shooting on a college campus too. That opens all kinds of doors.

He's local white male.

Lubbock doesn't have a good reputation with the police though, they aren't treated with respect.

The schools main officer recently ran down a girl while wrecklessly speeding and killed her, for example.

Nothing to see here folks.

No brown skin. No Mexicans. No Muslims.

Move right along.

Next.

So, was this some "shooter", or just someone who shot once, and is labeled as such to cause panic? I have heard of cases, including where we live, of a fleeing criminal causing all schools in a town to be on lockdown, for one bad guy fleeing cops, and no threat to schools at all, save entering a college campus to flee.

Hope this one is caught, either way.

From another source:


Officers were reportedly performing a wellness check on Daniels while on campus when, upon entering his room, officers reportedly found evidence of drugs along with drug paraphernalia, according to a statement by Texas Tech spokesman Chris Cook.

When Daniels was brought into the department for questioning, he reportedly pulled a gun and shot an officer in the head before fleeing on foot. It is unclear if Daniels had the weapon on him upon entering the campus police station.

There are some questions needing answers, if you ask me, about how a person who was bought in for questioning, was able to lay hands on a weapon.

The only way I can think of, that a gun would be present in that scenario, is if the suspect was not properly searched by the officer or officers who bought them in, or if the suspect managed to wrest a weapon from the officer he shot. Either way, the man simply should not have been able to lay hands on a weapon, while in the Campus Police division offices.

Simply madness, absolute madness.

A man lay dead today, who ought not have died. Something needs to be done about that, not only in terms of dealing with the murderer, but in terms of dealing with S.O.P. inadequacies, to prevent this sort of thing from happening again, anywhere.

This isnt a campus shooting. This is a drugged up kid who wasnt properly searched before being detained.

The officer paid with his life for ignoring common sense procedure.

It was half assed procedure. Had the cops done their jobs one wouldnt be dead.

Not to sound callous here. But geez....a little comon semse would have saved a life, and kept another from being ruined

That is absolutely appalling.

Does anyone have any idea yet, do you suppose, as to which particular drug it was that this fellow was being questioned about?

Was the officer shot a security officer or a police officer? The reason I ask is because a campus security officer would have no right to search the suspect, allowing something like this to happen. If it was a police officer, I can't imagine how he could have gotten to that point without being searched thoroughly; unless perhaps he took the gun from the officer?
