UMC officials confirm that Officer Timothy Varner was discharged around 3pm Monday afternoon. He was shot multiple times outside the Salvation Army after responding to calls of a possible gun threat.
Jeremy Charles Moor was a former resident at the Salvation Army shelter at 1111 16th St in Lubbock. Police arrived after staffers called 911, reporting that Moor had been asked to vacate, and that he might be carrying a gun.
Police documents say that Moor was in a truck holding another man at gunpoint when officials arrived on scene. According to the arrest warrant, when Varner approached the vehicle and asked Moor to come out, Moor proceeded to fire.
Both Varner and Moor were transported to UMC Saturday night for gunshot-inflicted injuries. Moor was released from the hospital Sunday. He was then booked into county jail where he's being held on $750,000 bail for charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault.
