Reno Judge Shot In Courthouse

Authorities are ordering people to stay inside some downtown buildings as they continue to investigate a shooting at Reno Justice Court.

Family Court Judge Chuck Weller was rushed by ambulance to Washoe Medical Center with a sheriff’s escort. He was believed to be alive, Reno police spokesman Steve Frady said. He is said to be stable and breathing.

The shooting happened about 11:15 a.m in the third floor of Reno Justice Court. Authorities are looking for a sniper who they believed fired the shots from a nearby parking garage.

Details here from the Reno Gazette-Journal.

I've been getting a lot of comments about Judge Weller on a much older post, which you can read here.
