Corpus Christi police, medics and Nueces County Sheriff's Office deputies responded about 7 p.m. to the courthouse after a report that a man was found with a gunshot wound to the head.The courthouse closed at 5 p.m.
It was unclear how a gun could have passed through security or been within the county building, equipped with security personnel and a metal detector. Attorneys, judges, and some media outlets who have courthouse identification badges typically aren't required to pass through the security checkpoint.

I thought it meant 'angry lesbian'... -my bad.
I’m pretty sure a judge is allowed to be armed inside the courthouse. Let me check with Roy Bean, and I’ll get back to you.
Was he “suicided?”
Need more information.
Upthread, I believe it has been confirmed that he committed suicide, but you never know.
He did commit suicide, and they are investigating his financial dealings - apparently he was heavily in debt, yet his lifestyle (house, spending habits, etc.) shouldn’t have contributed to the debt. Speculation is blackmail/extortion.
