Ector County jail records show 27-year-old Roy Daniel Garza of San Antonio is being held on eight counts of attempted capital murder in the shooting Wednesday, plus an aggravated robbery warrant.

Police say Garza fired at officers as they tried to serve a parole violation warrant at the apartment complex, striking Sgt. Pete Gonzalez and Officer Cory Wester.

Medical Center Hospital in Odessa says the officers are in fair condition Thursday.

Garza surrendered around 9 p.m. and was treated for a leg wound. Jail records do not list an attorney who can speak on Garza's behalf, and no bond is set.

The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating.
