"We don't know his motive yet," said Navajo County spokesman Adam Wolfe. "We do know the suspect was involved in the hearing, and for whatever reason, it led to him opening fire."

Officials say the man got a gun from his vehicle after the hearing and opened fire on the women as they left the courthouse. They have not released the name of the victims or the shooter, who is in custody.

Wolfe added that the attack was "personal, and not an attempt at a mass shooting."

Navajo County was investigating the incident.
