There’s been news this week of another courthouse shooting, this time in Chesterfield County, SC. The news report states that a 21-year-old mother was ambushed and shot twice by her child’s father following a child support hearing in Family Court. Apparently, the father did not attend the court hearing, but was instead waiting outside the courthouse for the mother to emerge before shooting her.
This news comes on the heels of another horrific incident this week in Delaware outside a courthouse where a child support hearing was scheduled. In that incident, the father of a man who kidnapped his three young daughters in 2007 opened fire with a handgun, killing his former daughter-in-law and her friend and wounding two police officers.
