Texas Tech University in Lubbock was placed on lockdown after a campus police officer was shot and killed.
University spokesman Chris Cook said campus police made a student welfare last evening and, upon entering the room, found evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
Officers then brought the suspect to the police station for standard debriefing.
While at the station, Cook said the suspect pulled out a gun and shot an officer in the head, killing him. The suspect then fled on foot and remains at large.
The suspect's identity has not been released.
University officials issued a lockdown alert to students on social media, noting that the suspect had not been apprehended. The alert urged those on campus "to take shelter in a safe location."
Additional information was not immediately available.
