CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — A South Texas man is being accused of fatally shooting his girlfriend and another woman after an argument and then firing at police officers before surrendering.

Larry Darnell Moore remained jailed Saturday in the Nueces County Jail on two counts of capital murder.

Police say they were met with gunfire after responding to a call at a Corpus Christi apartment complex Thursday evening.

The 41-year-old Moore allegedly fired upon a patrol vehicle, but no officers were injured.

After Moore was taken into custody, officers discovered the bodies of his girlfriend and another woman in an apartment. The women’s names have not been released.

Moore’s lawyer, Kenneth Botary, tells the Corpus Christi Caller-Times it appears Moore and his girlfriend had an argument and “it got out of hand.”
