Delaware Courthouse Shooting Update, Shooter was After Lawyer who Wasn’t There
Last week we posted an article, In the Line of Fire: How Dangerous is the Legal Profession? , in which we listed several recent acts of violence within the legal community. One of those stories was about a courthouse shooting in Delaware in which a gunman shot and killed two women before taking his own life. Since that post, chilling information has come forward.
According to an ABA Journal article, among the items found during a search of the shooter’s home was a book titled, Kill All the Lawyers. The ABA Journal also reported that, “when (the shooter) arrived on Feb. 11 at the Delaware courthouse, apparently had with him handwritten ‘death certificates.'” The death warrants were written for attorney Timothy Hitchings and his client. Fortunrately, Hitchings did not appear in court that day.
