LUBBOCK - A 19-year-old student who authorities say confessed to killing a Texas Tech University police officer has been indicted on a capital murder charge. 

Police say Hollis A. Daniels, of Seguin, was in the custody of campus police on a drug possession charge when officer Floyd East Jr., 48, was shot in the head. A special grand jury was convened Wednesday, resulting in a true bill for Daniels. 

According to the arrest warrant, Daniels told officers he was the one who shot their friend and he told detectives that he "f---ed up" and did "something illogical."

Daniels remains in custody at the Lubbock County Detention Center.
