Police in Texas are hunting for two suspects who allegedly opened fire on a county employee outside a courthouse early Thursday morning, Fox News reports.

The victim, a prosecutor at Kaufman County Courthouse, was fatally shot, according to sources including the Dallas Morning news.

Authorities are searching for two male suspects, dressed in all black and driving a silver, "older model" Ford Taurus, according to KLTV. One suspect is believed to be wearing a tactical vest.

The shooting took place in a parking lot around 9 a.m., KDFW reports. The victim was on his way to misdemeanor court when the suspects ambushed and shot him multiple times.

The Dallas County District Attorney's Office sent an email to staff which confirmed that the victim was a prosecutor, according to KHOU.

The message reads:

"This message is not intended to scare anyone but please be advised. A Kaufman County prosecutor was fatally shot a few minutes ago outside the Kaufman County Courthouse in Kaufman. Two masked gunman are the suspects. They have not been apprehended yet.

Please be aware of your surroundings when leaving the building for your safety. This is probably a isolated incident but until further notice if you plan to work past dark today please be careful and ask security for assistance escorting you to your vehicles if needed. I will keep you informed as to the arrest of the suspects when I am notified. Don’t panic but please be aware of your environment when leaving the building."

Kaufman County Judge Bruce Wood said he knew the victim well.

“He was revered and he did an outstanding job,” Wood said, according to the Dallas Morning News.“We see each other every day… It’s a very small courthouse.”

I am sure the courthouse was a gun free zone though.

Rocket Scientist,

Do you have information that we dummies do not have?

Tell us smart guy, where did these Criminals that Broke the Law get the Legal weapon that they chose to use to commit the crime that they chose to commit?

As a really wise human, perhaps you can explain to us why these Killers did not use a bomb, fire, knife, hammer, rope, rock, hands, etc to kill this person that these Law Obeying Killers, killed?

You need to be minimized....I think that Amerika's greatest threat is that People like you are allowed to speak.

We need to "Modify" YOUR 1st Amendment Rights because stupid people like you are why so many Killers exist!

After that, America needs to "Restrict" YOUR Right to Vote so that we can end the violence that we suffer because people like you vote for YOUR free shaaat and elect any incompetent that keeps your belly full.

Obviously, you can't carry a gun through the parking lot into a gun free zone, not unless they let you check them at the metal detector. Somehow, I believe that is frowned upon.

So you missed the point, the person obviously couldn't be carrying a gun across the parking lot into a gun free zone. Best place the perps could have picked to ambush him.

Keep in mind you're dealing with someone who thinks an inanimate object is responsible for committing a murder.

Funny, if only the gun free zone had extended to the parking lot, or maybe a block radius around the courthouse, or maybe to the area, or..........on and on and on. Gun free zones work in favor of those willing to break the rules.

Since, it wasn't a gun free zone, you really have no point, low integrity poster.

Guess, in your America, we need to convert our country to an active war zone, so you can feel like you're actually men ??? No military service or you'd understand, what you're wishing for...

Typical right wing extremist - the Constitution only applies when it supports your wacky extremist ideas.

You are a bigger threat to America than all the communists, socialists and progressives in America combined.

Many times when discussing stories on here, I do believe that the slewche is an inanimate object.
