WILMINGTON – We are saddened by and angry about what happened at the New Castle County Courthouse this morning.  This is an active case, so although the Governor and I have both received regular briefings on the investigation, I will defer any comments on that to our law enforcement personnel.

I have spoken to both Capitol Police officers who were injured by gunfire today, and both of them are doing well.  I had a chance to check on one officer in person, along with his family, down at Christiana Hospital earlier today.  The other officer had already been released but I spoke to him on the phone.  The Governor has spoken to both officers by phone.  We are very grateful to them for their actions today.

And our thoughts, of course, are with the families of the victims who did not survive this senseless act of violence.
