SAGINAW (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Bond has been set at $1 million for a hospitalized North Texas teenager charged with killing a 6-year-old neighbor and wounding a police officer.

Tarrant County jail records Wednesday listed 17-year-old Tyler Holder of Saginaw as in custody while hospitalized after being shot in the head by police.

Defense attorney Rose Anna Salinas said Wednesday that she’s visited her client. Salinas declined to release Holder’s condition or comment further.

Holder was shot July 23 as officers served a capital murder warrant in the slaying of Alanna Gallagher. Her body was discovered July 1 wrapped in a tarp on a residential Saginaw street. An arrest warrant affidavit later detailed that the girl was sexually assaulted before she was killed.

Investigators say Holder shot an Arlington officer before police returned fire. Detective Charles Lodatto was released from the hospital Monday afternoon.

Holder was charged with attempted capital murder after the wounding of Detective Lodatto.
