    Ohio Judge Returns Fire After He Is Ambushed on Way to Court

    EXCERPT:
    ...
    A judge in Ohio who was shot and injured in an ambush-style attack outside of a courthouse early on Monday managed to return fire with his own handgun before the suspect was shot dead by a probation officer nearby, officials said.
    “This was ambush or attempted murder on our judge,” Sheriff Fred J. Abdalla said in an emotional interview with reporters that was broadcast on television.
    The shooting took place just after 8 a.m. at the Jefferson County Courthouse in Steubenville when Judge Joseph J. Bruzzese Jr. was walking toward the building, the city manager, James Mavromatis, told a news conference.
    Two suspects were waiting for the judge in a car at a bank parking lot, he said. One of the men got out of the car and opened fire, hitting the judge, Mr. Mavromatis said in a news conference that was broadcast live on WTOV.
    The judge returned fire, and a probation officer nearby also opened fire at the attacker, killing the man, Mr. Mavromatis said. The other suspect was taken into custody.

    Good thing the judge was armed, and a probation officer also nearby.

      According to the article, sounds like it was the probation officer whom faired the fatal shot.

        The authorities identified one of the suspects as Nathaniel Richmond, the father of a local high school football player who was convicted of rape in a high-profile trial in 2013.

          Stupidity. This judge wasn't even involved in the rape case...not that it makes any difference.

            It's a shame guns had to be brought into it, but at least the judge had the good sense to return fire.

              According to court records, Mr. Richmond was a plaintiff in a wrongful-death lawsuit that Judge Bruzzese was overseeing. The lawsuit, filed in April, involved the death of Mr. Richmond’s mother in a house fire in Steubenville in 2015.

              This family breeds clowns.

              My worst jump story:
              My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
              As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
              No lie.

                You would be su by how many judges pack heat.
                Good on them, good on him for shooting back.

                  When he gets back to work in court, the judge should slap a smilie sticker on the front of his desk.

                  Well done Judge!

                  All human ills he can subdue,
                  Or with a bauble or medal
                  Can win mans heart for you;
                  And many a blessing know to stew
                  To make a megloamaniac bright;
                  Give honour to the dainty Corse,
                  The Pixie is a little shite.
