An Ohio judge is hospitalized after returning fire at the man who shot him Monday morning outside a courthouse in Steubenville.

This story has been corrected to show Ma'Lik Richmond was convicted in 2013, not 2012.

However, Abdalla said, a probation officer on the scene also shot the suspect.

Judge Bruzzese, who has been on the bench at the Jefferson County courthouse since 1998, was airlifted to hospital in Pittsburgh to undergo emergency surgery.

The incident happened outside of the Jefferson County Courthouse around 8 a.m. along the Ohio River in Steubenville, roughly 30 miles west of Pittsburgh, according to WTRF-TV. "This was ambush and attempted murder on our judge". And for people who say they're going to retaliate upsets me.

Abdalla told reporters after Monday's shooting that investigators are familiar with the suspect and are checking to see if he had any connection with the judge.

"It just hurts", Abdalla said.

"This individual laid in wait for our judge", Abdalla said, tearing up during his remarks.

Dan Tierney, a spokesman in the Bureau of Criminal Investigation at the attorney general's office, would not confirm how many suspects were connected to the shooting that injured Bruzzese.The bureau is investigating the shooting.

Officials believe the probation officer hit the suspect.

Steubenville City Manager Jim Mavromatis told WTOV that Bruzzese was speaking after the shooting, although authorities did not immediately say what condition the judge was in.

He parks his vehicle in a reserved spot for judges and was walking down the "courthouse alley" when he was shot.

The suspect's body could be seen lying next to a auto at a neighboring bank drive-thru.
