SAGINAW, Texas (AP) — A North Texas police officer has been moved out of intensive care as he continues to recover after being shot by a teenager accused of sexually assaulting and then suffocating a 6-year-old girl.

The condition of Arlington police Detective Charles Lodatto has stabilized after being shot Tuesday while attempting to arrest the 17-year-old at his Saginaw home, north of Fort Worth. Lodatto was part of a major crimes unit that was attempting to take Tyler Holder into custody when he pulled a handgun. A struggle ensued and Lodatto was shot. Another officer then shot Holder in the head.

Officials have declined to release Holder’s condition.

He previously was charged with capital murder in the death of Alanna Gallagher. Authorities say he now faces an attempted capital murder charge for shooting Lodatto.
