Reno judge shot

Posted by Ryan Jerz on Monday June 12, 2006.

Well, shit. Look at this. Still no details on the shooting, but let’s hope the judge is alive. Special thanks go out to my anonymous tipster, who happens to be aware of such things downtown. Lucky I didn’t go home for lunch, like I had planned, or I’d still be stuck there. Also, it looks like it really was Chuck Weller, as I was told earlier today. Let’s hope he’s doing alright, and pulls through this.

Update – 4:30 pm
I just heard there was a second shooting just a little while ago at the Wilbur D. May Museum at Ranch San Rafael Park. The shooter is said to be driving an orange Hummer and is considered (duh) armed and dangerous.

Update 2 – 5:40 pm
I also just heard that there was a bomb found in the judge’s car. So the possibility of it being a crazy guy going off at random is out. This was a targeted shooting all the way. I’ll post links as soon as I can get confirmation.

Update 3 – 7:30 pm
It was not the Wilbur May Museum, it was an apartment complex on Wilbur May Parkway in South Reno. Someone there was killed today, and the police think it’s the same shooter.
