Police are now saying the events leading to the officer-involved shooting in North Lubbock on Jan. 17 may have been drug related.
The suspect is accused of pointing his gun at an officer after severely beating two women.
One of the victims told police that 33-year-old Daniel Moreno forced Sarah Garcia into his vehicle at gunpoint.
Moreno then reportedly drove Garcia to Cynthia Ramirez's home in the 300 block of Duke Street where he allegedly held both women at gunpoint, demanding they give him his meth, something that was allegedly stolen out of his vehicle when he had visited the home earlier.
A witness recalls seeing Moreno with a gun in each hand, firing at least two shots inside the home.
An officer arrived shortly after, allegedly yelling for Moreno to put down his weapon, reportedly shooting him in the abdomen when he refused.
Police say Moreno is charged with three counts of aggravated assault.
