FoxNews.com -- (10/09/2017) 

A Texas Tech student accused of shooting and killing an officer at the police station on campus was caught late Monday and is now in custody, police tell local media.

The suspect, identified as Hollis Daniels, had been brought to the police station after a welfare check when he suddenly shot and killed the officer earlier in the evening before bolting from the scene, officials said.

Police had found "evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia" in the room of the suspect, identified as Hollis Daniels, Fox 34 reported.

After officers brought the student to the police station, he pulled out a gun and shot one officer in the head, university spokesman Chris Cook told the student newspaper the Daily Toreador.

University officials issued a lockdown alert to students on social media, noting that the suspect was still on the loose.

The alert urged those on campus "to take shelter in a safe location," however, the suspect has been caught and the lockdown lifted.

Texas Tech did not immediately identify the officer who was killed.
