CHICAGO (AP) - A grand jury has handed down an indictment of a suburban Chicago man for allegedly trying to kill two officers on a Drug Enforcement Administration taskforce during an undercover sting in August.

A Wednesday statement from U.S. prosecutors in Chicago says Adan Godinez faces multiple charges that include attempted murder and conspiracy to distribute drugs.

The 31-year-old Morris man allegedly opened fire in a parking lot of the Louis Joliet Mall when he saw law enforcement approaching during a cocaine sale. Godinez was injured as officers returned fire, though no agents were hurt. A co-defendant also faces multiple drug-related charges, but isn’t charged with attempted murder.

The Wednesday statement says both suspects have been held in jail since. A message seeking comment from an attorney for Godinez wasn’t immediately returned.
