Cook County Associate Judge Raymond Myles


A Chicago judge was killed and a woman was wounded in a shooting Monday outside the judge’s home, according to police.

Cook County Associate Judge Raymond Myles, 66, was found fatally wounded after officers responded to a call of shots fired at 4:51 a.m., police said.

The Chicago Sun Times reports that a neighbor said he heard a woman yelling, “Don’t kill him! Don’t kill him!” Then he heard about five gunshots. The neighbor went outside and saw the woman lying in the back yard. Myles’ body was on the back porch.

“Upon hearing the commotion and the gunshot, Judge (Raymond) Myles exited his residence,” Melissa Staples, the chief of detectives, said at a news conference at police headquarters. “(He) exchanged words with the offender before he was fatally shot multiple times.”

Staples said the suspect, described as a black male, then fled the area on foot. Authorities are reviewing multiple video cameras in the area to figure out a vehicle he may have gotten into.

Investigators believe the violent encounter may have begun as a robbery attempt, but nothing was taken from the house or either of the victims. It did not appear that the woman knew the shooter.

Detectives are pursuing multiple and promising leads, some from surveillance cameras nearby. Nothing was stolen, police said.

The FBI has offered a $25,000 reward, police said.

Here’s the video report via Fox News:

Our hearts and prayers go out to all involved.

R.I.P. Judge Myles
