A judge who survived being shot during a 1992 rampage at a courthouse in Fort Worth has died.

A memorial service was scheduled Thursday afternoon at First Methodist Church in Arlington for retired Judge Clyde Ashworth.

Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office says Ashworth died Sunday. He was 86. A cause of death was not listed.

Two people were killed and three were wounded, including Ashworth, in the July 1, 1992, gunfire blamed on George Lott.

Lott had claimed he wanted to draw attention to wrongs allegedly done to him by the legal system, including during his divorce. Lott was convicted in 1993 and executed the following year.

Ashworth was a state district judge before joining the 2nd Court of Appeals.
