Judge, suspect shot outside OH courtroom

Judge, suspect shot outside OH courtroom

OH officials say a county judge was shot and wounded as he walked toward a courthouse, and the suspect was killed when a probation officer returned fire.

This story has been corrected to show Ma'Lik Richmond was convicted in 2013, not 2012.

Steubenville City Manager James Mavromatis tells our NBC affiliate WTOV that Bruzzese was talking after being wounded. Police in the courthouse quickly came to the judge's rescue, including a probation officer who also shot at the suspect.

Jefferson County Judge Joseph Bruzzese was flown to a Pittsburgh hospital.

Police said a man apparently waiting for Judge Joseph J. Bruzzese Jr., who sits on the Jefferson County Court of Common Pleas, ran up to the judge and began shooting when he approached the courthouse. "This was ambush and attempted murder on our judge".

Neither the suspected shooter nor his suspected accomplice were immediately identified. A passenger in the suspect's vehicle was grazed by a ricocheted bullet and taken to the hospital. Once the bullet slugs are removed from the body, it will be determined who shot the suspect.

Authorities say the suspect died after a probation officer returned fire. It was unclear whether the shooting related to Bruzzese's work, which involves hearing criminal felonies as well as some civil cases, according to the court's website.

Investigators didn't immediately release information about his condition or the suspect.

The judge was walking from his vehicle into the courthouse when he was ambushed.

The suspect's body could be seen lying next to a auto at a neighboring bank drive-thru.
