KAUFMAN — Authorities say a Kaufman County employee has been shot by two unknown suspects outside the Kaufman County Courthouse building.

Pat Laney of the Kaufman County Sheriff's Office says the shooting occurred just before 9 a.m. Thursday outside a building across from the main Kaufman County courthouse. Laney says the employee was shot by two suspects who remain at large.

Radio broadcasts say the two are in a silver car, dressed in black, and at least one of them wore tactical gear. The broadcasts say the person shot was a prosecutor.

The employee was transported to an area hospital, but Laney did not immediately know his condition.

Employees inside the courthouse say the building remains on lockdown.
