    The 17-year-old North Texas man suspected in the death of his 6-year-old neighbor, Alanna Gallagher, was indicted on a charge of attempted capital murder Thursday.

    A Tarrant County grand jury handed down the indictment in connection with the shooting of Arlington police detective Charles Lodatto.

    Holder was treated for a gunshot wound to the head and released from the hospital on Aug. 7. He  remains in an isolated area in the Tarrant County Jail, his bail is set at $1 million.

    The Tarrant County Sheriff's Office said 17-year-old Tyler Holder, wounded in an exchange of gunfire when a multiagency task force served him with arrest and search warrants at his Saginaw home on July 23, was transferred to jail Wednesday. Holder is a suspect in the death of his 6-year-old neighbor, Alanna Gallagher.

    Holder is charged with capital murder in the death of Gallagher, who lived two doors away. Her body was found wrapped in a tarp in a residential street about a mile from her home on July 1.

    Holder has not yet been indicted in Gallagher's case because the case has not yet gone before a grand jury.
