Hollis Daniels admitted to shooting the officer.
A Texas Tech spokesman confirmed Wednesday that Daniels did not use a police department gun in the shooting of Officer Floyd East Jr. on Monday.

East went to check on the student Monday evening and found evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
He was not handcuffed.
Daniels was arrested, after a short campus-wide lockdown.
He is being held on a $5 million bond.
