New Details in LPD Officer Shot Saturday Evening

New details from the arrest warrant after an LPD officer was shot Saturday evening.
The arrest warrant for Jeremy Moor gives new details after an officer was shot Saturday evening outside the Salvation Army.

According to the warrant, a Salvation Army employee called the Lubbock Police Department after seeing a person with a gun at the Salvation Army Office in Lubbock. That's when Lubbock Police Officer Timothy Varner responded to the call. The warrant said when Officer Varner arrived on scene, he went up to a car, which had Moor, and another person inside.

"That feeling in your stomach that tells you something isn't right. You should do what you need to do," Salvation Army employee Laura Trevino said.

It was that gut feeling that lead Trevino to call 911 after suspecting there was someone outside their offices with a gun Saturday night.

The warrant said Officer Varner asked Moor to exit the car, and when Moor did that, he fired at Officer Varner, and Officer Varner returned fire.

According to the warrant, Moor was holding a man at gun point in the car, and put a .40 caliber weapon up the man's stomach. It continues saying the man said he smelled alcohol on Moor, and was told by Moor, "I'm not going to let them take me in. I'm going to have it out with them."

In the warrant, it says the investigation found that Moor had been drinking alcohol before this all happened, and that Moor refused a breathalyzer, which the Salvation Army requires of someone looking to stay there.

Through the entire event, Trevino said she was just thinking about others. "Protect my clients, protect my children, is what I call them, because they become your children as you grow to get to know them. First thing was get everyone inside, make sure everyone was safe," Trevino said.

"They say I'm a hero, but to be honest, I did what I'm trained to do, and no more, no less, and I'll do it again, that's what I do. It's my job," Trevino said.

Moor has been served two warrants, one for attempted capital murder against an officer, and the other for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He's currently being held in the Lubbock County Jail on a $750,000 bond.
