The news of the killings in Kaufman is making national headlines, and causing courthouses across the country to question security, and in some cases provide extra security for public officials.
Kaufman is about 135 miles away from Nacogdoches. Two months ago, Kaufman County Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse was shot and killed on his way from the parking lot to his office. The investigation is ongoing. This past Saturday, Hasse's boss, Kaufman County DA, Mike McLelland and his wife, were shot and killed inside their home.
Nacogdoches County is reacting, and ordering some security assessments as we speak.
