Texas courthouse shooting suspect held on $4M bond

Suspect in fatal shooting of woman at Texas courthouse held on $4 million bond By The Associated Press

BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) ' A defendant in a family dispute accused of fatally shooting an elderly woman as she tried to run inside a Texas courthouse is being held on $4 million bond.

Bartholomew Granger is accused of wounding three other people Wednesday, including his daughter and the daughter's mother. A bystander was also injured. The 41-year-old Granger was arraigned Thursday morning.

Granger is accused of grabbing a gun from his pickup truck outside the Jefferson County Courthouse in Beaumont and opening fire. Authorities say that sparked a shootout that ended after Granger briefly took hostages in a nearby building.



Granger is charged with one count of murder. He was on trial this week in a separate criminal matter.

Beaumont is 80 miles east of Houston.
