MILAN (AP) — A gunman opened fire in a Milan courtroom on Thursday, killing a judge and as many as two other people before being captured as he tried to flee on a motorbike, news reports and Italy's interior minister said.

Witnesses reported barricading themselves inside their offices and taking cover under their desks as police hunted for the gunman. The employees trickled out, women first, followed by the men who had their court ID cards checked.
