Two Clark County judges visiting Indianapolis were shot early Wednesday morning.

Judge Andrew Adams and Judge Bradley Jacobs were visiting Indianapolis for the Spring Judicial College – one of several continuing education conferences hosted by the Indiana Supreme Court. According to police, they were involved in a disturbance in a White Castle parking lot around 3 a.m.

Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush said in a statement she had visited both judges and their families.

“Our judges across the state are heartbroken to learn of this violent act against our colleagues,” Rush said in a statement. “We send our prayers for a speedy recovery for both Judge Jacobs and Judge Adams and our love and support to their families and the Clark County community.”

Police say they do not believe the shooting had to do with their judicial duties. Both remain in stable condition at local hospitals.

The Clark County courts are closed Wednesday. But are expected to reopen Thursday.
