LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

32-year-old Jeremy Moor, the man accused of shooting LPD Officer Timothy Varner outside a Salvation Army shelter earlier this month, has been indicted for attempted capital murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon threat.

Police say when they arrived outside the Salvation Army family services shelter at 17th & Avenue K on Saturday, Oct. 12, Moor was in a truck holding another man at gunpoint.

The victim told police that Moor put a .40 caliber weapon against his stomach and said, "I'm not going to let them take me in. I'm going to have it out with them."

The victim says he also smelled alcohol on Moor's breath.

Investigators say Moor had been drinking and had refused to take a breathalyzer test, which the Salvation Army requires of anyone wanting to stay at the shelter.

When Officer Varner arrived on the scene, gunfire was exchanged, and both the officer and Moor were shot multiple times.

Varner was shot in the leg and in the shoulder but he is continuing to recover.

Moor remains in the Lubbock County Detention Center.

Jeremy Moor was last arrested in August of 2012 for being a felon in possession of a firearm. According to the court documents, he pled guilty to the charges in March of 2013 and was given eight years probation as part of the plea deal.
