LUBBOCK, Texas — Texas Tech University warned students for a time Sunday evening to avoid the area around Jones AT&T Stadium.
Lubbock Police provided an update Sunday evening, saying the situation was a SWAT callout. At 6:20 p.m. a man called police from the top of a parking garage. He told police that he would shoot at officers when they showed up.
