The shooting was reportedly the result of a drug related arrest, and the suspect was later taken into custody after an attempt to flee:

ALL-CLEAR: The suspect has been apprehended. Lockdown lifted on campus. Avoid TTUPD, north side of campus. https://t.co/jOFvYnGgL6.

Even though details remain sketchy, the Texas Democratic Party wasted NO time in getting right to their talking points:
Allowing concealed guns on college campuses was a dumb and dangerous idea. Stay safe, Raiders. https://t.co/rppPSxqW8u

First of all, as is the case with many liberal kneejerk reactions, something must be pointed out:
You don't even know what happened, you ghoulish pricks.

No they don’t, but that didn’t stop them.
1. Campus carry is 21+ only. Suspect is 19
2. Guns still not allowed in dorms
3. No report saying he was even armed when they brought him in https://t.co/YTv8PUhvZz

He was 19 you have to be 21 to campus carry thank you for proving that criminals will not follow gun laws. https://t.co/y490WpXgaD

A cop was just killed and you know 0 facts about the situation, but you thought it was a good time to push a political message?

You have to be 21 to campus carry.
Shooter was 19.
Guns laws don't prevent criminals from owning Guns.
You dumbasses. https://t.co/qmWRrLAR9v

Seriously? An officer just lost their life. Thousands of people just went through the scare of their life. And your bringing up politics? https://t.co/IzOxWznaTb

An officer is dead & TX Dems are ready to blame concealed carry before there's any proof. Gotta get a victory lap while body's still warm! https://t.co/Sv3RgvK5lj

A LEO is dead <90min & you’re politicizing it? Wait for facts. You’ve every right to opine, but Christ…can it wait a moment? #txlege

Shameless and pathetic. In other words, business as usual for the liberal Democrats.
1) the student was too young to be legally carrying,
2) the student was too young to legally own a firearm,
3) cant have a gun in dorms.

Texas Dems are already politicizing the shooting at Texas Tech. This is disgusting. https://t.co/jrErEQc31h

And you probably wonder why Texans have rejected Democrats for almost a quarter century.

1. Let no tragedy go to waste.
2. Ignore facts.
3. Politicize gun laws, even when it doesn’t make sense. https://t.co/pJi9djiHHU
