Holder met a group of five teenagers for an unknown sale at around 4 p.m. Sunday near Fiero Place and 30th Place North, Clemens said.

The bullet hit a 13-year-old girl in the leg, and she was transported to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries, Clemens said.

Holder will be tried as an adult and is being charged with five counts of aggravated assault, one count of committing a felony with a firearm and another count of discharging a firearm at a motor vehicle, Clemens said.
