A federal judge has ordered that Chicago's top cop give answers as part of a lawsuit over a fatal shooting by a police officer.

Last October, the Chicago Tribune wrote about Officer Gildaro Sierra after he allegedly shot three men, two fatally, in separate incidents in a six-month period.

Last June in the Englewood neighborhood, Officer Sierra fatally shot Flint Farmer. Farmer was unarmed. His girlfriend has now filed a federal lawsuit.

Superintendent Garry McCarthy made comments to the Tribune that the officer involved shouldn't have been on the street given his history of shootings.
