Texas NBC affiliate KCBD is reporting that a Texas Tech campus police officer has been shot and killed in the line of duty.

The assailant was apparently a TTU student whom officers had brought to the police headquarters for a “welfare check”. The report states that the student – identified by police as Hollis A. Daniels – pulled a gun and shot the officer, then fled the scene.

From the KCBD report:
“Early reports say the shooting suspect is 6 feet tall, 140 pounds, with red hair and blue eyes, wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans. Police say he is driving a silver 2001 BMW SUV. “

As of 10pm Eastern time, the shooter was still at large and the Texas Tech campus was on lockdown and being searched by a SWAT team.

UPDATE: Texas Tech officials now say that the suspect is now in custody, and the campus lockdown has been lifted.
