Cook County sheriff: Suspect went out to vehicle to get gun, returned to courthouse
GRAND MARAIS -- Investigators believe that Daniel Schlienz, the suspect in the shooting of two people in the Cook County Courthouse Thursday, went out to his vehicle and got a gun after a jury found him guilty of criminal sexual conduct. That's according to Cook County Sheriff Mark Falk, who spoke at a news conference this morning.
He re-entered the courthouse and went to the office of County Attorney Timothy Scannell with the loaded weapon, Falk said.
