CHICAGO -- The FBI and federal prosecutors are investigating a shooting involving a Chicago police officer who opened fire on a stolen car full of teenagers.

The Chicago Reporter obtained the dashcam video of the shooting from a retired Cook County judge.

It happened in December 2013, near 95th and LaSalle.

The officer says he fired to stop the driver from pulling away, because a backseat passenger who tried to get out was being dragged by the car.

Two teens were shot and wounded, and a third was injured while being arrested.

The officer was placed on desk duty.

As of February, police policy forbids an officer from shooting into a moving car if the officer sees no weapon in the car.

The city council will consider a $360,000 settlement with the mothers of the three injured teens.
