Suspected rapist Brian Nichols (search) grabs a deputy's gun, opens fire in an Atlanta courtroom, killing Judge Rowland Barnes (search), a court reporter and a sheriff's deputy before escaping.

We'll get the latest from FOX News' Jonathan Serrie live outside the Fulton County Courthouse.

Plus, we'll get reaction to the tragic death of Judge Barnes from Mike Mears, director of the Georgia Public Defenders System; Drew Findling, criminal defense attorney, and B.J. Bernstein, former prosecutor.

And, are our nation's courtrooms safe? We'll ask:

• Mark Fuhrman, former L.A. homicide detective
• Jim Hammer, former San Francisco district attorney
• Ted Williams, criminal defense attorney

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
