Cook County Associate Judge Raymond Myles was gunned down outside of his Chicago home Monday, reports The Washington Post.
From The Washington Post:
Police were searching for the person who killed Cook County Associate Judge Raymond Myles, 66, and seriously wounded his 52-year-old female companion. But no one was sure whether the killing was targeted, a robbery attempt or just “another senseless act of violence,” deputy superintendent Kevin Navarro said at a news conference.
Regardless, he said, police considered it “a direct attack on the criminal justice system.”
…Detective Melissa Staples told reporters that a “close associate” of the judge walked outside first as the pair prepared for a morning workout…“Words were exchanged,” Staples said. The man shot the woman once in the leg, and “upon hearing the commotion,” Myles went outside to investigate [before having words with the suspect and being shot multiple times.]
Police said that is wasn’t immediately clear if the killing — the judge’s female companion is in serious condition at Christ Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the leg — could have been a robbery attempt and are investigating a motive, reports CBS News.
