Reports are coming in of a shooting at a courthouse in Wilmington, Delaware.
Twitter users and news outlets report from on-the-scene; the number of injured remains unconfirmed.
Twitchy will continue to monitor this situation and update with further developments.
There are still conflicting reports about the shooter as well.
And now confirmation is coming in that the shooter is dead.
Update: Another death confirmed.
The alleged shooter has been identified as David T. Matusiewicz. His ex-wife was one of the other victims.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the victims and their loved ones.
Matusiewicz, the shooter, was able to obtain a gun despite having been convicted of a felony.
The Associated Press reports that David Matusiewicz is is custody on a “federal probation technicality.” The gunman’s name has not been released by authorities, but police have confirmed the shooter is dead.
DelawareOnline.com reports that the shooter was Thomas Matusiewicz. While that has not been confirmed by police, it appears that initial media reports IDing his son, David Matusiewicz, as the killer were incorrect.
We will continue to monitor this story as it develops.
