BBCI: Ambushed Ohio judge shoots gunman dead outside court

Judge shot in 'ambush' outside Steubenville courthouse

An Ohio judge was shot outside a local courthouse Monday morning in what officials described as a calculated ambush.

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

A probation officer returned fire at the gunman, killing him, according to WTOV. He was flown to a Pittsburgh-area hospital.

Around 8 a.m., Judge Joseph J. Bruzzese, Jr. was attacked by two suspects as he made his way into the Jefferson County Courthouse in Steubenville, City Manager James Mavromatis told reporters.

The chief justice of the Ohio Supreme Court is calling the shooting attack on a judge going to work a cowardly ambush. And for people who say they're going to retaliate upsets me.

Dan Tierney, a spokesman in the Bureau of Criminal Investigation at the attorney general's office, would not confirm how many suspects were connected to the shooting that injured Bruzzese.The bureau is investigating the shooting.

Corabi said it's likely the 65-year-old Bruzzese had arrived early to review Monday's batch of legal motions. Once the bullet slugs are removed from the body, it will be determined who shot the suspect. Steubenville City Manager James Mavromatis said that he believes the judge is now in stable condition. He is listed as working in the General/Domestic Relations Division of the court since 1998, according to Ballotpedia.

He confirmed the suspect died at the scene.

No other information was immediately available.

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

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