NEW CASTLE COUNTY, Del. -

Delaware Capitol Police say no explosives were found but troopers are still investigating a bomb threat made at the New Castle County Courthouse Tuesday.

Investigators say the threat was made over the phone around 12:15 p.m. Earlier this month, a gunman opened fire in the lobby of the courthouse and killed two people.

As a result, police evacuated the building and utilized explosive detection canines from several police agencies to search each floor of the courthouse and its parking garage.

Employees and visitors have since been allowed to reenter the building.
