Police say a Cook County Circuit Court judge has been shot to death outside his home on the South Side of Chicago.
A police source identified the man as Cook County Associate Judge Raymond Myles, the Sun-Times is reporting.
Judge Myles, 66, worked at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse, Cook County's main criminal courthouse at 26th and California. Police said Associate Judge Raymond Myles was fatally shot early this morning. Photos of the home show a large driveway leading to a parking pad behind the home. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was later prononuced dead, the report added. The woman, who was taken to the same hospital, was listed in serious condition.
The shooting is under investigation.
According to court records, Myles was attacked in fall 2015 after a driver hit his vehicle, according to the Chicago Tribune. He had been involved in several high-profile cases, including hearings involving suspects in the 1992 massacre of seven people at the Palatine Brown's Chicken Restaurant, and involving the suspect in the murder of three members of singer Jennifer Hudson's family in 2008. Myles' nose was broken, and he had to have reconstructive surgery to his face.
A suspect in the beating was arrested 10 months later and he was released pending trial, according to the Tribune's March story.
"I'm deeply saddened to share with you that the Chicago Police Department called my office this morning with tragic news concerning one of our colleagues".
