A shooting incident Saturday afternoon, July 20, 2019, at a North Wilmington rehab and nursing facility has left two people dead.
Sources told WDEL that the shooting was confined to the two victims and may have been a murder/suicide.
Delaware State Police say the victims were a 79-year-old woman and an 82-year-old man. The woman was a resident of ManorCare at 700 Foulk Road.
Dozens of police officers from several agencies descended upon the ManorCare facility shortly after 1 p.m. for reports of a possible active shooter situation.
Officers in tactical gear and carrying automatic weapons arrived in droves, flooding Foulk Road with police vehicles.
Coming in behind the police were a fleet of New Castle County paramedic units and Talleyville ambulances and fire apparatus.
Police officers and EMS personnel assisted residents and staff outside, eventually escorting many in wheelchairs to Arden Courts, a neighboring assisted living facility, to get them out of the heat.
Police said a handgun was recovered at the scene. The victims' identities have not been released.
