A suspected gunman and two women were killed after shots were fired inside a courthouse in Delaware, police say.
Wilmington police told Fox 29 that a man walked into the lobby of the New Castle County Courthouse on Monday morning and opened fire.
Delaware State Police Sgt. Paul Shavack said officers exchanged gunfire with the shooter 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 shooter died.
Shavack said police had not confirmed that one of the women was the shooter's estranged wife, though earlier in the day the city's mayor said that was the case. Two police officers suffered injuries that were not life threatening.
