Commenting on the matter, a spokesperson from Texas Tech University said that the police had conducted a welfare check at a student's room earlier in the night.

Officers brought 19-year-old Texas Tech student Hollis A. Daniels into the department for questioning when the officer was shot in the head, the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal is reporting.

A SWAT group landed at the scene and Lubbock police aided the scan for Daniels, which finished when a Texas Tech officer handled him around 9.30 p.m.

"At this time, the shooter is still at large", the notification reported.

The shooting suspect is said to belong to a prominent family of theater owners in Seguin, Texas.

The "no deal is better than a bad deal" mantra is complete rubbish, both as a potential outcome, and also as a negotiating ploy. But she faces more disquiet in her Conservative Party over the negotiations and how a future relationship should look.

Texas Tech has confirmed that the active shooter is a student who shot dead a police officer earlier tonight. "I want to express my appreciation to the Texas Tech Police Department, the Lubbock Police, the Sheriff's Office and other local state and federal agencies that have assisted in this tragic event", said Lawrence Schovanec, TTU President.

The campus lockdown has now been lifted, university officials said.

It is not clear if Daniels had the gun on him at that point, or if he took the weapon from an officer.

The university has identified the suspect as 19-year-old Hollis Daniels.

The university was placed on lockdown just before 8:30 p.m., according to the university's official Twitter account.

The suspect was seen leaving in a gold vehicle after shooting an individual, according to the Texas Tech Alert System. Officers brought the suspect to the campus police station.

Texas tech is located in Lubbock, Texas and has an enrollment of about 35,000 students. The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal also reported he is a freshman at the university.

A video published by KCBD News Channel 11 showed a team of officers, including several in tactical gear, escorting the suspect into a police vehicle.
