Courthouse Shooting Raises Questions

Authorities in Michigan are being asked to review security guidelines in the wake of a deadly shooting.

 

Michigan’s Berrin County Courthouse will re-open today after a prisoner transfer turned deadly on Monday. An inmate being removed from a holding cell was able to wrestle a gun from a deputy and kill two court bailiffs. The deputy and a civilian were also wounded. Responding officers the shot and killed the inmate.  Officials believe the inmate’s dexterity was due to his being hands being cuffed in front, rather than behind the back. A memorial walk was held Tuesday.
