Ohio Judge Shot Outside Courthouse in Apparent Ambush-Style Attack

An Ohio judge is in stable condition after being shot in an ambush-style attack on his way into a courthouse on Monday morning, officials said.

Judge Joseph J. Bruzzese Jr. was just arriving for work at the Jefferson County Courthouse in Steubenville at around 8 a.m. when he was ambushed, according to Jefferson County Sheriff Fred J. Abdalla.

And officials said the suspect is — perhaps simply coincidentally — connected to another high-profile Ohio case from a few years ago.
