Three people have been confirmed dead and two injured in a Wilmington, Del., courthouse shooting, according to a Feb. 11 Los Angeles Times report. The shooting reportedly happened in the morning on Feb. 11 when a gunman entered the New Castle Country courthouse and shot at two women.
Delaware State Police Sgt. Paul Shavack told reporters that officers returned fire. Both women and the gunman died. Shavack said that the two officers were taken to the hospital and were being treated for non-life threating injuries.
One of the women was reportedly the estranged wife of the gunman. At a news conference later in the day, Delaware Atty. Gen. Beau Biden said the courthouse shooting stemmed from a custody dispute. “It's developed out of a long, over the course of many years, custody dispute in the courts of this state,” Biden told reporters.
There was no statement on whether the gunman killed himself or whether the officers shot him.
