Attorney General Beau Biden made the following statement Monday afternoon in response to the shooting at the New Castle County Courthouse:
“Today’s tragic attack was not a random act of violence, but rather the result of a longstanding child custody dispute that has lasted in the Delaware Courts for several years. Thanks to the bravery of the Capitol Police officers who responded, and were wounded in the process, a greater tragedy was averted. Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims of this crime and their families.”
Biden reminded the public that anyone who witnessed today's incident and needs to speak to someone to receive counseling or other services should call Delaware State Police Victim Services at 1-800 VICTIM1.
