By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - At last check the man accused of firing a handgun at a Lubbock police officer was still in critical condition.  However, on Sunday University Medical Center referred to  Jose Juan Ortega, 27 as a "security patient" and therefore no information could be provided to KCBD NewsChannel 11. 

Officers went Friday morning to a home in the 300 block of 54th Street because Ortega was wanted for aggravated assault in a Levelland shooting incident Thursday.  Police say Ortega fired a shot at officer Gerardo Torres who then returned fire.  Torres escaped serious injury.  Police say Ortega now faces charges of Attempted Capital Murder.
