NBC affiliate out of Lubbock, Texas, KCBD-11 is reporting that the 19-year-old student and suspect in the deadly shooting of an officer Monday night has been captured.

KCBD-11 reports that Hollis Daniels was apprehended at the football field, Jones AT&T Stadium shortly after 9:30 p.m. without incident.

They also say a gun was found in the area of the arrest. 

Earlier reports said that a Texas Tech University police officer had been shot and killed at the campus police headquarters, prompting a lockdown of the Lubbock campus that was lifted at 9:35 p.m. local time.

NBC also reported that university spokesman Chris Cook said campus police made a student welfare check Monday evening and found upon entering the room evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia. Cook says officers brought the suspect to the campus police station for standard debriefing.

During this time, Cook says the suspect pulled out a gun and shot an officer in the head, killing him. The suspect then fled on foot and has been captured.

Daniels, the alleged shooter, had a mug shot from Guadlupe County in Texas from an arrest Aug. 6, 2017.
