Newsday

SLOATSBURG, N.Y. — A man pulled out a sawed-off rifle inside a Rockland County courtroom Monday night and tried to shoot a woman he was involved with in a domestic dispute, police said.

The man, who police said was in his 50s, missed her, and the shot went straight toward the judge, striking a window several feet above where he was sitting on the bench.
