Courthouse Shooting Leaves 3 Dead

WILMINGTON, Del. (February 11, 2013)—Delaware State Police Sgt. Paul Shavack confirmed that three people died in the shooting Monday morning at the New Castle County Courthouse in Wilmington, Del.

He said the suspected gunmen and two women are dead.

Shavack said police have not yet confirmed that one of the women was the suspected gunman’s estranged wife, although earlier in the day the city's mayor said that was the case.

Two police officers suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Shavack said officers exchanged gunfire with the man in the courthouse's lobby before he passed metal detectors.

Shavack did not say whether the shooter killed the two women or whether they were killed in the gunfire.

Shavack also did not say how the gunman died.
