SLATON, TX (KCBD) -

A Slaton man charged with shooting a Lubbock police officer has been found incompetent to stand trial.

On July 1, a judge ordered Jeremy Moor be sent to a treatment facility for up to 120 days with the goal of making him fit for trial.

Moor is accused of shooting Officer Timothy Varner outside the Salvation Army Family Shelter back on Oct. 12. He is charged with attempted capital murder and aggravated assault.

Investigators say Moor had been turned away from the shelter because he refused to take a breathalyzer test.

Varner was taken to UMC and released a few days later.
