Carrillo is a former leader of a U.S. Air Force anti-terror squadron.
He and a second suspect are accused of killing federal security officer Dave Patrick Underwood and wounding a second officer in front of the Oakland federal building during the late May protest.
A federal grand jury indicted Carrillo for murder and attempted murder in the Oakland slaying Monday.
Carrillo faces separate charges in an ambush in Santa Cruz that killed a sheriff’s sergeant last month.
Authorities said Carrillo specifically targeted law enforcement. His next hearing is August 6th.
