Ga. courthouse set to reopen after gunman's attack
CUMMING, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia courthouse is opening its doors after a gunman attacked it Friday, wounding a deputy before he was killed in a shootout with law enforcement.
WSB-TV reports that the Forsyth County courthouse was set to reopen for business Monday morning. Repairs were made over the weekend to walls and windows that were struck by bullets.
It was the scene of an attack Friday when 48-year-old Dennis Marx arrived with an assault rifle, explosives and supplies to take hostages. Marx had numerous run-ins with law enforcement. He was scheduled to appear in court Friday to plead guilty in a drug case.
Deputy Daniel Rush, who was shot in the leg, was reported in stable condition this weekend and has been credited with saving lives. ___ Information from: WSB-TV, http://www.wsbtv.com/index.html
