A grand jury on Monday indicted the Brooklyn man accused of shooting a police officer in the head last week.
The Brooklyn district attorney's office says Luis Ortiz, 21, is charged with one count of attempted murder in the first degree.
Ortiz allegedly shot Officer Kevin Brennan in Bushwick last Tuesday.
Officer Brennan and two other plainclothes officers were responding to a report of shots fired at the Bushwick Houses when Brennan was hit by gunfire after a chase. He is being treated at the hospital.
Ortiz faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted.
