Sadly complacency kills a lot of good officers in our profession. Not sure if that's the case here or not, but sounds like it.

I wonder if he didn't grab the officer's gun? Find it hard to believe that they didn't search him, if for nothing else for more drugs and paraphernalia

Kills a police officer for what? What a complete idiot. You cannot bypass fundamental safety protocols . They are there to prevent stuff like this from happening. Such a tragedy. So many lives ruined.

And people get all upset when officers seem to be aggressive.

Local news reported they are looking for a missing body cam, presumably from the slain officer, so maybe there was a struggle for the officer's gun.

Either way, 2 families' lives are forever changed

I hate when the term Active Shooter is used when it is actually just a shooting.

Prayers up for the officer and his family! A terrible descision was made that will cost two people the rest of their lives. I believe they need to lay the book down on this kid and make an example of him. Society's expectations and norms have lowered to the point that changes have to be made and accountability needs to be placed on individuals to be responsible for their actions.

Suspect admitted to killing the officer, they have the body cam that was missing from the officer, but he was shot with a 45 and the fallen officer's gun was still in his holster. The suspect was also not handcuffed. Another officer was in the room, but left and that is when he heard the shot.

I had posted another OP, did not know this one was up before. TTU PD was my last LEO department I worked for while working on my Masters years past. There is so much more that goes on "behind the scenes," many would be shocked...on any campus. At least back then, there were several fellow officers who were also working on post-grad degrees, but always took their oath to serve and protect with dedication to all.

Very sad to hear and the entire Law Enforcement community in Lubbock is in mourning for a fellow officer.. end of watch. Gog bless.......

Very sad, indeed. Every LEO has made more than one mistake when dealing with the public, but that happens when you are trying to not come across too business-like, gruff, or whatever. It is sometimes hard to think "safety" first without generating discourtesy or worse complaints.

Like Kuma said, there are lots that go on in a campus atmosphere that many believe is "wonderland" and that "junior" is a fine, up coming, gentleman.

My thoughts are with the officer's families, personal and professional.

I have several friends from the old days...various LEO departments, that posted on FB their support for TTU PD and their anguish for the loss of a brother last night. It sure brings back memories of past years, but just reinforces my admiration and pride for those who defend the "line."

I'm sure many if not most of us have stories of "mistakes" while enforcing the law that cost the ultimate sacrifice? I personally know of an incident that cost a DPS Trooper his life many years ago as well? LEO's are human, prone to mistakes, but that's just it...we all make mistakes but sometimes it's your last.

Be aware, stay vigilant and protect.....
