A man was shot killed inside a Delaware courthouse Monday morning after he opened fire in the lobby, killing his wife and another woman before officers gunned him down.

The shooting took place just after 8:15 a.m. in Wilmington, WPVI-TV reported. Two women and two police officers were hit by gunfire during the exchange.

Police confirmed that both women died. The condition of the officers was not stated.

The shooter was identified as 45-year-old David Matusiewicz, who was due to be in court Monday morning for a child support hearing.

He previously served prison time for parental kidnapping, in a case that attracted national media attention.

Federal agents ultimately tracked him down in Nicaragua 19 months after vanishing, having told his wife that he was taking their three children to Disney World.
