Arrest Made in Shooting of Texas Judge

A "person of interest" has been arrested in connection with the shooting of a Texas judge at her home last week.

Authorities have not revealed what, if any, connection the arrested individual has to the judge.

District Judge Julie Kocurek was shot in the driveway of her Austin home on Friday night in an apparently planned attack. The judge was seriously injured by shrapnel in the attack but is expected to make a full recovery.

Since the shooting, authorities have speculated that the attacker may have been stalking her or somehow been involved in one of the judge's cases.
