I totally understand, so here's the gist. " Authorities have yet to identify the man, but federal court records show that a jury in Fargo(North Dakota) was deliberating on Monday in the case of Jeffrey Sahl Ferris, 55, who was accused of nearly running over seven children last year and threatening one child with a gun." After the reading of the guilty verdict, the convicted individual slit his throat in the courtroom and died.

Things like this have happened before; I can think of two examples off the top of my head and I'm sure there are more. It's scary and gruesome but it's not unprecedented.

An FBI spokesman called what was used “an easily concealable instrument” (yesterday's AP article said he reportedly "had a sharp instrument that might have been made of plastic"):
FBI spokesman Kevin Smith said his agency will investigate whether any federal criminal laws were broken in the incident. The U.S. Marshals Service is responsible for security of the courthouse.
“Officials there will review their security procedures to ensure the safety of the courthouse family and those visiting the facility,” Smith said.
Acting U.S. Attorney Nick Chase of North Dakota declined to comment about any details of the incident other than to say there were five employees from his office in the courtroom at the time and “none of them were physically hurt.”

Again, not sure where to post this, but I was compelled to do so. Recommend making this as big as possible to get the full effect:🚙🚔🚨

Judgeing from the video it was a couple of kids joyriding in a stolen vehicle or somebody wanted for something and running away. But let's look at the bright side: They are nog shooting up a school, church, store or hospital. So there's that.
