Jones AT&T Stadium Was Lit Up in Blue to Honor Fallen Police Officer

It was a somber evening Tuesday as Jones AT&T Stadium was illuminated in blue light, a salute to commemorate fallen Texas Tech Police Officer Floyd East Jr.

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.
