Son of US District Judge Esther Salas killed, husband shot

By Maryclaire Dale (AP) — Judiciary officials say a gunman shot and killed the 20-year-old son of a federal judge as he answered the door of the family home Sunday in New Jersey, and shot and wounded the judge’s husband before fleeing. The attack occurred at the North Brunswick home of U.S. District Judge Esther Salas, and killed her son, Daniel, Chief District Judge Freda Wolfson told The Associated Press. Wolfson says her husband, defense lawyer Mark Anderl, was injured. A judiciary official who wasn’t authorized to comment and spoke anonymously to the AP says a gunman posed as a FedEx delivery driver. The official said Salas was in the basement at the time and wasn’t injured. The FBI says it’s searching for one suspect.

UPDATE 1:50 p.m.: Investigators are examining a possible connection between the shooting and the body of a man found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in Sullivan County, New York, a law enforcement official said. The man is being investigated in connection with the shooting, a law enforcement official and a judiciary official told The Associated Press.

UPDATE 4:35 p.m.: The FBI has identified Roy Den Hollander as the primary subject in the attack that occurred at the home of Salas on July 19. Den Hollander is now deceased. The investigation remains ongoing.
