IL judge fatally shot outside Chicago home

A Cook County judge was shot to death behind his Roseland home early Monday, and a 52-year-old woman was wounded, according to reports.

The man was identified as Cook County Associate Judge Raymond Myles, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

Associate Judge Raymond Myles, 66, was shot multiple times shortly before 5 a.m. on his porch in the South Side of the city, authorities confirmed. The woman was shot in the leg and was listed in serious condition.

Myles was attacked in 2015 after a minor traffic collision after taking pictures of the damage on his vehicle, the Tribune added.

No one has been arrested in connection to the shooting so far.

"I heard maybe six shots".

Myles had been involved in several high-profile cases in his courtroom at 26th and California in Chicago. "She was screaming, 'Don't kill him, don't kill him!'" an unidentified neighbor told the Tribune, saying the judge and the woman often left the home early in the morning to work out at a nearby health club.

Myles had to be taken to the hospital for a fractured nose, chipped tooth and injuries that later required reconstructive surgery. Among the suspects who appeared before him were two people accused in the Brown's Chicken murders that took the lives of seven people, and a man charged in the slayings of three relatives of singer Jennifer Hudson.
