Chicago cop indicted in Laquan McDonald shooting

Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke has been formally indicted in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, whose death was captured in a widely viewed police dashcam that sent thousands of protesters marching down Chicago streets.

On Tuesday, a grand jury returned an indictment on six murder charges and one count of official misconduct, according to court records.

Van Dyke, 37, was released from the Cook County Jail on Nov. 30 after posting a $150,000 bond, 10 percent of a $1.5 million bail. Van Dyke was charged with first-degree murder on Nov. 24, just hours before the video was released to the public.
