A 24-year-old man has been charged in connection to the circumstances that led to the deaths of two Chicago police officers who were struck and killed by a train Monday night.

Edward Brown has been charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and reckless discharge of a firearm, the Cook County State's Attorney's Office said. Investigators believe officers Conrad Gary and Edward Marmolejo were investigating reports of those shots fired on Metra tracks when they were struck and killed by a South Shore Line train.

Brown is due in court for a bond hearing Thursday at 1:30 p.m., reports WLS-TV.
