LUBBOCK (AP) – Texas Tech University will do an external review of its police department’s policies and procedures following the fatal shooting of an officer while he was booking a student at the campus police station. University President Lawrence Schovanec said Thursday that the review is part of an effort to improve campus safety and security. Hollis Daniels III is charged with killing Officer Floyd East Jr. Investigators say he was searched but managed to pull a gun at the police station. Meanwhile, authorities say Daniels was questioned the previous day by police investigating a reported stolen gun. Lubbock police spokeswoman Kasie Whitley said Daniels threatened someone at a home on Sunday before driving off. She says a gun was stolen from the home, but neither she nor police Chief Greg Stevens would say whether Daniels is suspected of stealing that gun.
