OH judge shot, injured in ambush-style attack outside courthouse

Jefferson County Common Pleas Judge Joseph Bruzzese

As Bruzzese walked from his auto to the courthouse, Richmond ran at him shooting, Abdalla said.

Courthouse video shows both the judge and the gunman firing about five times each, said Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla.

Even for those who see tragedy on a regular basis, this one felt different. The suspect's body was still at the scene Monday afternoon.

The suspect was killed during a shootout in which Bruzzese may have shot him as well as a probation officer on the scene, CNN said.

Jefferson County Judge Joseph Bruzzese, Jr. underwent emergency surgery after the morning shooting but is expected to survive.

Richmond was the father of Ma'lik Richmond, who was convicted for the 2012 rape of a 16-year-old girl while he was at the high school.

A visiting judge from Hamilton County, where Cincinnati is located, handled the vast majority of the rape case.

Steubenville City Manager James Mavromatis tells WTOV-TV that Bruzzese was talking after being wounded. "He was clearly an intended target", Corabi said.

His condition was not immediately clear, Mavromatis added. This second person, who was not identified, did not get out of the auto and was wounded by a possible bullet ricochet and taken to the hospital, the sheriff said.

Abdalla said authorities were investigating whether Richmond had any possible connections to the judge, saying only that the shooter had "been involved in different things in Steubenville".

Judge Joseph Bruzzese Jr was shot several times just after 08:00 local time (12:00 GMT) in Steubenville on Monday morning.

The courthouse will remain closed for the day as the investigation continues.

"Fran and I are praying for Judge Bruzzese and his family at this hard time", Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine said of himself and his wife, USA Today reported.
