A 19-year-old Howard College student was arrested Wednesday afternoon after allegedly carrying a firearm onto the campus, prompting officials to temporarily increase security at the school.
Mobey Cordell Lewis, of 506 Young, was arrested following an altercation at the college on charges of unlawfully carrying a weapon in a prohibited place and possession of marijuana (two ounces or less) in a drug-free zone.
Howard County Sheriff Stan Parker announced Wednesday the human skull found at a salvage yard in mid-December is being prepared for DNA analysis in hopes of identifying who it came from.
According to Parker, the skull was sent to the Lubbock County Medical Examiners Office shortly after its discovery in an effort to determine the cause of death and identify where — and who — it may have come from.
