Chicago judge shot to death outside his home


CHICAGO — A judge who oversaw criminal cases in Cook County, Ill., was shot to death early Monday outside his Chicago home and a woman he knew was shot and wounded, police said.

Investigat­ors are looking at the possibilit­y that the shooting of Associate Circuit Court Judge Raymond Myles and the acquaintan­ce could have been part of an attempted robbery, although police don’t believe anything was stolen from the victims or the house. Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Myles also “may have been targeted for one reason or another.”

No arrests have been made in the shootings that happened around 5 a.m. on Chicago’s South Side. Myles was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Because the woman who was shot is a witness to a killing, her name is not expected to be released, Guglielmi said. Chief of Detectives Melissa Staples said the woman was shot once and is expected to survive.
