There was also a tremendous turnout at a memorial service held on campus, as many pulled together and lit candles in remembrance of Officer East.
Officer East was 48 years old and had been with the Texas Tech Police Department since 2014, working in El Paso. He came to the Lubbock, Texas campus in May of this year.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to benefit Officer East’s family. He left behind a wife and two daughters.
