MILAN (AP) - Officials in Milan, Italy say a man on trial for fraudulent bankruptcy opened fire in the courthouse today, killing a judge, his lawyer and a co-defendant.

As the shots rang out, court employees barricaded themselves inside their offices and took cover under their desks.

A prosecutor says the gunman first fired on his lawyer and the co-defendant, and he seriously wounded a second co-defendant.

Then he killed the judge as he walked through the building. The man is in police custody.
