UMC holding fundraiser for wounded police officer


UMC is hosting a fundraiser this week for a Lubbock police officer who was shot multiple times earlier this month while on duty.

Police say Jeremy Moore shot officer Timothy Varner outside the Salvation Army back on Oct. 12.

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

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

Now the hospital wants to help the officer and his family with any needs they may have.

UMC will cook hot dogs and hamburgers this Thursday to raise money.

The cost is $5 dollars a plate.

The fundraiser will be in the south parking lot of the UMC ER from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Moor remains behind bars Tuesday. He is charged with attempted capital murder and two counts of aggravated assault.
