A suspect was fatally shot after opening fire on a judge near a courthouse in Steubenville, Ohio, on August 21, 2017.

A prosecutor says the man who shot and wounded an OH judge was the father of a Steubenville High School football player convicted of rape in 2013. The passenger told police he had been drinking with the suspect, who said he needed to go to court.

Neither the suspected shooter nor his suspected accomplice were immediately identified. As a result, investigators aren't entirely sure whether Bruzzese hit the suspect, who was ultimately shot three times and killed. The judge was carrying a weapon and may have shot the suspect at least once. It's unclear how many shots the probation officer fired.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said in a statement that teams from the state's Bureau of Criminal Investigation had begun a probe into the shooting.

Steubenville City Manager James Mavromatis tells our NBC affiliate WTOV that Bruzzese was talking after being wounded.
