Officials in Central Texas say they're cleaning a former school in Killeen used as a storm shelter and have destroyed about 600 cots after a person housed there during Hurricane Harvey was found to have a drug-resistant staph infection known as MRSA.
Texas Tech University (TTU) in Lubbock was put on lockdown on Monday, October 9, as police hunted a student accused of shooting and killing a campus police officer. Freshman Hollis Daniels was detained by police almost an hour after the campus-wide security alert was issued. He's accused of shooting a police officer inside the campus police station after being taken in for questioning over drugs found in his dorm room, according to reports.
