    (CNN) A Texas Tech University police officer was fatally shot at the police station in Lubbock Monday night, university spokesman Jonathan Seaborn told CNN.

    The school issued this statement:

    In a statement, the school said police made a student welfare check.

    "Earlier this evening, Texas Tech Police made a student welfare check. Upon entering the room, officers found evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia. Officers brought the suspect to the police station for standard debriefing. During this time, the suspect pulled a gun and shot an officer in the head. The officer is deceased.

    "The suspect fled on foot and is currently still at-large. Texas Tech University campus is on lockdown. We will update as more information becomes available."

    Good God, I think the "debriefing" procedure needs some work!!!
    I'm sure they will catch the POS.

    Jeez, very sad to hear. My parents were impressed in the late 80's that our TX campus police were armed.

    Looks like somebody failed to exercise some common sense.

    Wonder if the DUmmies are thrilled. Because a cop was killed, and it apparently was a drug related offense.

    Or a simple pat down. The perp didn't produce anything they didn't allow him to have. This is law enforcement 101. We actually have training courses on pat downs and securing even compliant inmates. Every department should contact my training department and take our handcuffing class. It might save some lives. Take a look at what could happen if you get too complacent:

    From what I've read, the guy was not handcuffed. One officer was working with him and a couple of others were in and out of the room. At the fatal moment, the officer working with the guy was alone with him and had turned his back on the shooter.

    So there was a failure to do a search, and either a failure to cuff or a failure to have at least one officer watching the guy constantly. Sad.
