According to details; just after 8 AM in the morning a male shooter entered the lobby of Newcastle County Courthouse and started firing wildly. The gunman allegedly shot and killed his estranged wife before two others became victims of his vivid shooting.
The shooter was killed in cross firing by police officers on duty. Cops also shot by the gunman but luckily suffered non-life-threatening injuries due to their bullet proof vests.
In a press conference an hour ago, police spokesperson Paul Shavack confirmed two women were killed and two security officers were injured in the shooting. The gunman never got through a security checkpoint in the courthouse, so he never had to pass through a metal detector.
Shavack described the shooter as white and between the ages of 50 and 60. Gunman acted alone, and the shooting was not an act of terrorism, he added.
No further details about the victims were revealed by the police.
