LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - A West Texas man remains jailed on felony charges for allegedly shooting a Lubbock police officer outside a downtown Salvation Army shelter.

Lubbock police spokesman Jason Lewis said Monday the officer, Timothy Varner, was in satisfactory condition and expected to be released from the hospital later in the day.

Thirty-two-year-old Jeremy Charles Moor of Slaton remains jailed on charges of attempted capital murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He has no attorney yet.

Lewis said Varner and Moor were shot multiple times after police were called Saturday night about an agitated man outside the shelter.

The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reported Monday that court records show Moor pleaded guilty and was sentenced in March to eight years' probation on a charge of a felon in possession of a firearm.
