Texas judge shot outside home

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) _ Police are still searching for suspects after a Texas state judge was shot and wounded in the driveway of her Austin home.

District Judge Julie Kocurek remained hospitalized Saturday with injuries that aren't believed to be life-threatening. She was shot after 10 p.m. Friday in the driveway of her home.
 
Austin police said no arrests have been made and that there were no further details about a motive. They also said more information would be released Saturday.
 
Kocurek, a former prosecutor, was appointed to the court by then-Gov. George W. Bush. She's been presiding felony judge in Travis County, which includes Austin, since 1999.
 
At one point, she was the only Republican elected to a state district judgeship in the heavily Democratic county, but she switched parties in 2006.
