ATexas college student was arrested Monday night after he allegedly shot a police officer in the head on campus, according to social media reports. Hollis A. Daniels reportedly shot a Texas Tech police officer before fleeing in his car and ultimately getting apprehended by law enforcement.
The shooting was apparently prompted by Daniels getting busted in a dorm room with drug paraphernalia, according to the CBS News affiliate in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. When he was taken to the campus police station, Daniels reportedly pulled out a gun and shot the officer in the head before fleeing.
“I locked my doors, locked my door, I even put a couch in front of my door just in case, because, all of these cops are outside of my dorm specifically, so that was kind of freaky,” student Lainey La Rue Garner, who was in the same dormitory building, told CBS.
The shooting came a little more than one week after another White male gunman killed 58 people when he took aim at thousands of unsuspecting concertgoers in Las Vegas on October 1.
