A Chicago police officer was indicted by a grand jury this week and charged with federal civil rights violations for a 2013 incident in which he was captured on video opening fire at a car full of teenagers.

In a two-page indictment filed Thursday and made public Friday, Marco Proano, 41, is accused of using unreasonable force with “acts that resulted in bodily injury” to two people. These two people were not named in the indictment.”
