Breaking News: Georgia Courthouse Shooting

Judge Rowland Barnes and a court reporter in the Fulton County (Atlanta) Courthouse were killed by an escapee, Brian Nichols, facing rape charges. Nichols grabbed a gun from a courtroom deputy, held the courtroom hostage, and then shot the judge and court reporter before taking off through the stairwell.  He hijacked a car outside of the courthouse and is still on the lamb.  Bashman has several links to it here.
