The FBI is conducting a civil rights investigation into the fatal shooting of a motorist in 2013 by Chicago police officers.

The Chicago Tribune reports that a brief mention of the case was contained in thousands of pages of emails related to police shootings that the city released on New Year's Eve.

According to sworn depositions by two officers, Esau Castellanos was speeding at 80 mph and crashed on the Northwest Side. They say that when they approached, Castellanos opened fire. His family disputes that, and no gun was ever found.

The officers fired, hitting him three times.

FBI spokesman Garrett Croon told the newspaper it has been investigating the shooting.

The officers were placed on administrative duty only when the newspaper inquired about their status Friday.
