Cook County Judge Fatally Shot Outside His Roseland Home

While the incident possibly started as an attempted robbery, police said nothing was taken from the judge or the woman.

Authorities gather outside a home on the South Side of Chicago, Monday morning, April 10, 2017, after Cook County Circuit Court Judge Raymond Myles was shot to death outside his home.

A report via dnainfo cited police saying the woman leaving the judge's house when she encountered and engaged with the gunman who in turn shot her in the leg.

Officers responded at 4:51 a.m.to a call of shots fired in the 9400 block of South Forest and found a 66-year-old man and 52-year-old woman suffering from gunshot wounds, according to Chicago Police. President Donald Trump has repeatedly singled out the city for failing to quell the violence. A woman was also wounded in the shooting and is expected to survive. Myles was pronounced dead at a hospital.

"Based off of this very preliminary information, he exchanged words with the offender before he was fatally shot multiple times", Staples said. Staples declined to comment on what the suspect and victims said to each other, citing concerns about the ongoing investigation.

"We're investigating a multitude of possible leads", she said.

"Every day, civil servants like Judge Myles and those of us in law enforcement work tirelessly to hold criminals accountable and make our streets safer", Navarro told reporters.

The FBI has offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to Myles' killer.

Police identify the man as Judge Raymond Myles, a Cook County judge. The other driver punched him in the face, causing serious injuries, according to court records cited in the newspaper. Circuit court judges appointed him an associate judge in 2001 and Myles had served in the criminal division since 2009, Chief Judge Timothy Evans said in a statement.
