ODESSA, Texas (AP) — A San Antonio man has been accused of shooting two West Texas police officers as they tried to arrest him on a robbery warrant. Odessa police Sgt. Pete Gonzalez and Officer Cory Wester were in fair condition Thursday at Medical Center Hospital in Odessa. Police say 27-year-old Roy Daniel Garza suffered a leg wound during Wednesday's nine-hour standoff at an apartment. Garza surrendered, was treated at a hospital and then taken to jail. Ector County jail records show Garza was being held on eight counts of attempted capital murder, plus an aggravated robbery warrant from Williamson County. No attorney was listed for Garza, whose bond was not yet set. Police had no details on his injury. Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Elena Viramontes says the case remains under investigation.
