WHEELING, W.Va Police say a retired police officer armed with two weapons fired up to two dozen shots at a U.S. courthouse in West Virginia before police returned fire and killed him.

Wheeling Police Chief Shawn Schwertfeger identified the gunman in Wednesday afternoon's shooting as 55-year-old Thomas J. Piccard of Bridgeport, Ohio. He is a retired Wheeling police officer.

At a news conference late Wednesday, Schwertfeger said Piccard was armed with an assault weapon and a handgun.

He also said three on-duty security officers were injured by flying debris during the onslaught.
