INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — A 22-year-old man has been charged with buying two guns for a convicted felon who used them to shoot two Indiana police officers.

A federal grand jury indicted Vincent D. Windell of New Albany on Wednesday.

Prosecutors say Windell bought a .45-caliber handgun and a .38-caliber revolver for 37-year-old Robert Datillo of Clarksville in December.

Authorities say Datillo used the guns to seriously wound two Jeffersonville police officers during a Feb. 19 ambush at a motel. Datillo killed himself the next day after a 10-hour standoff.
