Don't mess with Judge Bruzzese!  Good for him! 

Herald Star Online reports Jefferson County Common Pleas Judge Joseph Bruzzese is out of surgery and “doing fine” at UPMC in Pittsburgh, according to City Manager Jim Mavromatis.

Bruzzese was shot in an ambush-style attack outside the Jefferson County Courthouse on his way into his office Monday morning. 

County officials said the courthouse, which was closed today as the investigation progresses, will remain closed Tuesday. 

Mavromatis said the family of the shooter, who was shot and killed by a probation officer who happened upon the exchange of gunfire between the shooter and the judge, has been notified.
The name of the shooter is expected to be released to reporters later today.
