Hollis A. Daniels is seen in a police booking photo at the Lubbock County Detention Centre in Lubbock, Tex., on October 10, 2017.

Hundreds and hundreds of hand-signed cards for the Texas Tech Police Department.

"The family of the officer is in the thoughts and prayers of the Texas Tech community", Texas Tech President Lawrence Schovanec said in statement.

Texas Democratic Party Deputy Executive Director Manny Garcia said in a statement Tuesday that "our words were inadequate, hurried and we apologize", adding that the tweet has been removed. During the search, Daniels showed up to the room and was found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia, Bonath said.

Authorities say Hollis Daniels III fatally shot officer Floyd East Jr. while being booked on a drug possession charge.

It was revealed by police this morning that Hollis Daniels, however, was not old enough to have a concealed-carry firearm.

One student left bag of sympathy cards in the middle of memorial circle asking students to write something to Officer East's family.

It is still unclear whether Daniels had the gun on him when he was taken to the police station or if he took the weapon from an officer. East's body camera was taken.

During an interview later, Daniels said he messed up and did "something illogical", according to the affidavit.

Police had been sent to the suspect's room for a standard welfare check and whilst inside found various drugs and drug paraphernalia; violating not only welfare protocol but campus regulations as well.

Daniels attended Seguin High School, and an April 2016 school newsletter includes a photo of him, beaming along with his fellow student thespians and theater crew as they celebrated advancing to district in a UIL competition.

While at the station, Texas Tech Police Chief Kyle Bonath says the suspect pulled out a gun and shot the officer.

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.

Texas Tech officials initially issued a lockdown alert to students on social media, urging those on campus "to take shelter in a safe location".
