They found Judge Andrew Wilkinson when they got there. He’d been shot several times, USA Today said.

After receiving treatment at a neighboring hospital, Wilkinson passed away.

As of January 2020, the alumnus of Emory University School of Law was serving as an associate judge for the 4th Judicial Circuit Court.

“Drew was an exceptional lawyer and a man who loved his family,” his former law partner Jason Divelbiss said in a statement, via CNN.

“His wife and kids were always his highest priority and my thoughts go out to them at this horrible time.

“Drew was also very close with his brother and the office always filled with laughter when he dropped by,” Divelbiss continued.

“One of Drew’s greatest assets was his ability to bring stability to the most difficult situations which is what made him a great attorney, mediator and eventually judge.”

Who is suspect Pedro Argote?

On October 20, the police declared that Pedro Argote, 49, was wanted in relation to Wilkinson’s death.

Only hours after the judge signed an order prohibiting the suspect and his children from having any contact or visitation, he was accused of Wilkinson, according to Herald-Mail Media.

Argote is rumored to be divorcing, although specifics of the case are unknown.

According to authorities, Argote is believed to be using a 2009 Mercedes GL450 in silver with Maryland registration plates 4EH0408.

According to CNN, he is described as being 130 pounds, 5 feet 7 inches tall, with brown eyes and black hair.
