Wikipedia: On June 6, 2014, Dennis Marx, who was later identified as being a member of the Sovereign Citizens Movement, opened fire on a Forsyth County, Georgia courthouse, injuring one deputy before being shot and killed himself.[116] Marx had become involved in a dispute with sheriff’s deputies in 2011. He had been arrested on marijuana and weapons possession charges. As a result, Marx sued the sheriff’s department for alleged civil rights violations and use of excessive force. The Southern Poverty Law Center asserts that in the suit, Marx filed documents using the pseudo-legal language common to “sovereign citizen” court actions.[117][118] On the day of the incident, Marx had been scheduled to enter a plea at the courthouse in connection with the year 2011 arrest that had resulted in his lawsuit.[119]

The gunman, who police identified as Dennis Marx, was due in court to plead out on drug and weapons charges at the Forsyth County Courthouse in Cumming, Ga.. Authorities described him as “a sovereign citizen,” part of an anti-government group that has been tied to violent attacks on law enforcement around the country.
Marx drove his silver sport utility vehicle over the curb and through flower beds before coming to a stop in front of the courthouse flagpole. “It was on the courthouse as far as it could go — up to the stairs,” witness Kim Stephens told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
A deputy performing a routine sweep of the courthouse approached the armed man who was still in his car. Marx began firing through the windshield, hitting the unnamed officer in the leg. He then threw out homemade spike strips so cars could not approach the building before beginning a “frontal assault” on the building, which included throwing gas or pepper grenades, police said.
Marx was carrying buckets of homemade explosives and ammunition, smoke grenades, supplies and water. “He came here with the purpose of occupying the courthouse,” Forsyth County Sheriff Duane Piper said during a press conference. “Mr. Marx’s intention was to get in that front door and take hostages.”
