Washington:  A suspect being brought before a US court allegedly shot at a woman police officer, stabbed a judge and then fled the scene, a news channel reported.

Authorities were searching on Saturday for the suspect in Washington state.

The man gave his name as Michael Thomas at the Grays Harbor county court on Friday.

He knocked Deputy Polly Davin to the floor and took her weapon. He then fired twice, hitting the deputy once in the shoulder.

"The judge rushed to the aid of the officer and actually struck the suspect physically, knocking him off of the deputy," said Undersheriff Rick Scott.

The suspect then cut judge David Edwards in the neck. Both the judge and the police officer were treated at a hospital.
