BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) - A Southeast Texas courthouse has reopened two days after gunfire outside left one person dead and three hurt.
The Jefferson County Courthouse reopened Friday. A suspect remains in custody over the shootings in downtown Beaumont.
Bartholomew Granger had been on trial in a family-related criminal case. Police say he opened fire a couple of hours before he was due back in court Wednesday.
Granger is charged with murder over the fatal shooting of a bystander and is held on $4 million bond. Authorities identified the slain woman as Minnie Ray Sebolt of Deweyville.
Investigators say Granger's adult daughter was wounded. Police say she was hospitalized Friday in critical but stable condition. Her mother and another bystander suffered minor wounds.
Beaumont is 80 miles east of Houston.
