White nationalists impose deadline for OK on campus speeches

  White nationalists impose deadline for OK on campus speeches An attorney for associates of white nationalist leader Richard Spencer says he'll sue Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati if they don't agree by Friday to make campus space available for him to speak. A Georgia college student contacted both schools recently about renting space in the latest effort to have Spencer speak on college campuses.Student Cameron Padgett asked University of Cincinnati to provide an auditorium for Spencer to speak later this month. A UC spokesman said last week the school was assessing safety and logistical considerations.

There are early reports of an active shooter at Texas Tech after a shooting in a police station. It sounds like a student shot the cop in the head after they found drug paraphernalia at his room. Just terrible.

DALLAS — A Texas Tech University student confessed to killing a campus police officer who had been booking him on a drug possession charge, telling detectives he had done “something illogical” and that “he was the one that shot their friend,” an investigator said.

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — A police chief says a Texas Tech University student accused of killing a campus police officer was searched at some point but still managed to have a gun on him while being booked on a drug charge.

DALLAS — A Texas Tech University student accused of killing a campus police officer was searched at some point before he pulled a gun while being booked on a drug charge at the police station, authorities said Thursday.

Lubbock police Chief Greg Stevens said during a news conference that Hollis Daniels III was searched after campus police officer Floyd East Jr. went to his dorm room Monday to check on his welfare, but he didn't say whether the search occurred before or after East brought Daniels to the campus police station.

"He was searched during his time in custody but unfortunately he was able to gain access to a weapon," Stevens said.

Daniels, 19, wasn't in handcuffs while East was booking him on the drug possession charge. Authorities say Daniels pulled a handgun and fatally shot East before fleeing. He was captured within two hours and is charged with capital murder. He's being held on a $5 million bond.

DALLAS (AP) — A Texas Tech University student confessed to killing a campus police officer who had been booking him on a drug possession charge, telling detectives he had done “something illogical” and that “he was the one that shot their friend,” an investigator said.

The on- campus fatal shooting caused authorities to put the university on lockdown, as they searched for the student , who fled the station on foot and was identified by the school as Hollis A. Daniels, 19. BREAKING: # TexasTech on lockdown after university police officer shot and killed.

Online jail records don't indicate whether Daniels has an attorney who can speak on his behalf. Messages left for his family in Seguin, near San Antonio, were not immediately returned.

Police also said Thursday that officers stopped Daniels' car on Sunday — a day before the shooting — because it matched the description of one driven by someone suspected of stealing a gun from a Lubbock home that day.

Police spokeswoman Kasie Whitley said Daniels had threatened someone at the home, but neither she nor Stevens would say whether Daniels is also suspected in that gun theft. Daniels was charged Wednesday in federal court on a count of possession of a stolen firearm. The indictment describes the firearm as a .45, which is the same caliber used in the shooting of East.
