LUBBOCK -- An arrest affidavit of Texas Tech University Student Hollis Daniels reveals new details in the shooting death of a police officer on campus Monday night.
Daniels, 19, who is a freshman at the school has been charged with Capital Murder. He is currently being held in custody with a $5 million bond.
The police officer killed in the shooting has been identified as Floyd East, Jr.
According Daniels' arrest affidavit, he was originally arrested by East for possession of a controlled substance and was taken to the Texas Tech Police Department for booking.
A Corporal Tyler Snelson saw Officer East working on the paperwork for the booking and noticed Daniels nearby facing the opposite direction not wearing handcuffs. Cpl. Snelson then left the room and went to a nearby office.
