Law enforcement officials searched through the night for 33-year-old Brian Nichols. Police say he killed a judge, a court reporter and a sheriff's deputy Friday at an Atlanta courthouse. Authorites say Nichols, facing rape charges, was being escorted to a courtroom by one female deputy when he grabbed her gun.
