ODESSA, Texas (AP) - Bond has been denied for a man charged with shooting two police officers during a nine-hour standoff at an apartment complex in Odessa, Texas.

Roy Daniel Garza of San Antonio was arraigned Thursday on eight counts of attempted capital murder of a peace officer. He also faces a previous aggravated robbery warrant.

Police say Garza on Wednesday wounded the officers as they tried to serve a parole violation warrant. Both officers were hospitalized in fair condition Thursday.

Garza was treated for a leg wound, then booked into the Ector County jail.

A woman was also arrested. Detention Officer Kevin Shockey identified Meghan Leanne Garza as the suspect’s wife. She’s charged with hindering apprehension of a known felon. Her bond was $50,000.

No attorneys were listed for either Garza.
