DelawareOnline adds that, “Wilmington Mayor Dennis Williams reported one of those killed was the shooter’s wife.”

The suspect was reportedly shot by officers at the scene. There are reports that two or three other people were injured.

Update at 9:45 a.m. ET. “Suspect Dead, Five Injured In Delaware Courthouse Shooting”:

“The suspect in an early morning shooting at the New Castle County Courthouse has been pronounced dead,” our colleagues at Delaware’s WDDE report. The station adds that at least five people were injured during the incident.

And according to the station:

“At 8:00 this morning, a shooter entered the lobby of the New Castle County Courthouse at 500 North King Street in Wilmington. Shots were fired, but specific details on the shooting are unavailable.

“Police are conducting a routine search of the premises and are interviewing possible witnesses as they evacuate the courthouse.”

Our original post — “Developing: Shots Fired At Delaware Courthouse”:

Shots were fired Monday morning at the New Castle County Courthouse in Wilmington, Del., according to local news reports.

Those news sites are reporting there have been at least a few people injured. But as of 9:15 a.m. ET, there wasn’t much solid information, including whether the shooter has or has not been taken into custody. We’ll watch and monitor.

Among the news outlets that have jumped on the story:

– Delaware Online.

– Philadelphia’s NBC 10.

– My Fox Philly.

This is happening as Vice President Biden is in nearby Philadelphia for a “roundtable on gun violence with law enforcement officials.” [Copyright 2013 NPR]
