(Lubbock) -- A 19-year old Seguin man, who's already facing a capital murder charge in Lubbock, is now also facing a federal weapons charge. The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reports that a federal grand jury on Wednesday indicted Hollis Alvin "Reid" Daniels on a federal charge of possession of a stolen firearm.

The newspaper reports that the indictment states that Daniels was in possession of a stolen .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun on the night of his arrest. Daniels is believed to have used that weapon to shoot and kill Texas Tech University Police Officer Floyd East Jr. The incident occurred Monday night at the university's police station, where East was said to be sitting and working on paperwork on a drug case involving Daniels. It's unclear how Daniels was able to bring the gun into the police station. Daniels confessed to the crime when he was later apprehended after fleeing the scene of the shooting.

Daniels is currently being held in the Lubbock County Jail on the capital murder charge. His bond has been set at $5 million.
