ABILENE, Texas -

An Abilene man was indicted Thursday for allegedly tampering with evidence after a child was shot in the head in August 2012.

Christopher Mack, 22, was originally charged with injury to a child for allegedly shooting 12-year-old Zachary McDaniel after a bad drug deal on North 9th Street. According to police, McDaniel was in the backseat of a car that was fleeing the scene when he was shot.

In September, police lowered Mack’s charge to tampering with evidence in the case and charged 18-year-old Keegan Clark with the shooting.

A Taylor County grand jury determined Thursday there is enough evidence to indict Mack on the tampering charge.
