WILMINGTON, Del. -

A large banner hangs in the lobby of the New Castle County Courthouse Thursday thanking capitol police as the building opened to all workers for the first time since Monday's deadly shooting.

The banner read "Thank You Capitol Police" and included hundreds of signatures and messages written with pens and markers of all different colors.

The courthouse opened for the first time Wednesday to court workers only. On Thursday, non-court workers and jurors returned for the first time since the shooting.

On Monday morning, investigators say 68-year-old Thomas Matusiewicz walked into the courthouse lobby and shot Christine Belford and her friend Laura Mulford, killing both of them.

Two officers working inside of the courthouse were shot in their bullet proof vests and sustained minor injuries.

Investigators determined on Tuesday that Matusiewicz died as the result of a self-inflicted gun shot wound to the head.
