  • Georgia Judge and Court Reporter Shot To Death at courthouse

    ATLANTA - A judge and court reporter were killed and two deputies were wounded in a shooting at the Fulton County Courthouse in downtown Atlanta on Friday. Authorities were hunting for the gunmen.

    The judge, later identified as Superior Court Judge Roland Barnes, was shot on the eighth floor of the courthouse, while one of the deputies was shot on a street corner just outside the building, said Officer Alan Osborne with the Atlanta Police Department.

    Witnesses said the gunman carjacked a car and authorities were searching for several vehicles reported stolen in the area.

    Fulton County Sheriff's Lt. Clarence Huber identified the suspect as 34-year-old Brian Nichols, who was being held on rape charges stemming from an incident in August.

    Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor interrupted floor action in the Georgia Senate to announce the shooting. "It appears that Superior Court Judge Roland Barnes has lost his life, along with his court reporter," Taylor told lawmakers.

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution newsroom staff was being told that Don O'Briant, a features reporter for the paper, was beaten by the suspect outside the courthouse. Mike King, an editorial board member for the paper, said O'Briant was taken to Grady Hospital.

    The hospital reported that it as treating two deputies. It was not immediately known the extent of their injuries.

    "I saw one person on the street that they were perfoming CPR on," said court reporter Amy McKee.

    District Attorney spokesman Erik Friedly said the shootings started shortly after 9 a.m. on the building's eighth floor.

    Witnesses said the suspect carjacked a car and authorities were searching for several vehicles reported stolen in the area.

    All the judges in the building were locked in their chambers. The courthouse and other buildings in downtown Atlanta were on lockdown. Traffic in the blocks surrounding the courthouse was backed up as police cruisers flooded the area looking for the suspect.

    Judge Barnes recently sentenced former Atlanta Thrashers player Dany Heatley, who pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide in the death of a teammate.
