TRAGEDY IN ATLANTA -- ANOTHER JUDGE SLAIN

This kind of violence is unconscionable under any set of circumstances, but in a courtroom it is unthinkable. Details of how the suspect, Bryan Nichols, was able to remove the gun from the officer's holster in the Atlanta courtroom have not been forthcoming; but, he purportedly shot and killed Judge Rowland W. Barnes, along with an as yet unidentified court reporter, and wounded at least one sheriff's deputy. An additional deputy may have been shot and, according to some reports, may have died from his gunshot wound. So, there may be a total of three fatalities in this shocking courtroom mayhem.

The suspect escaped the coutroom, is presently at large, and is thought to be driving a car he may have carjacked (according to CNN News):
