WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - The mayor of Wilmington, Del., says a man suspected of killing his wife and wounding two others at the New Castle County Courthouse is dead.

Wilmington Mayor Dennis Williams said Monday in a telephone interview that the shooter was killed by police. Williams says he was told the man shot and killed his wife and wounded two other people about 8:10 a.m. Monday. Williams says the couple were estranged.

A Wilmington police spokesman said earlier in the day that three people were shot. Cpl. Jamaine Crawford said the victims were two women and a man. The man was described as a security person.

Hours after the shooting, there was still a heavy police presence around the courthouse and streets were blocked off.
