Delaware Capital Police arrested a Wilmington man after he allegedly tried to enter the New Castle County Courthouse with a knife Friday.

Police announced the arrest of Douglas Hunnings, 56, today after he allegedly tried to take a concealed 10-inch inside a homemade sheath. Police say they found the knife during an X-ray scan of Hunnings’ jacket and other belongings.

Police arrested Hunnings without incident and a judge charged him with carrying a concealed deadly weapon. Hunnings posted $250 secured bond.

The courthouse is the same place where Thomas Matusiewicz opened fire earlier this month, killing his former daughter-in-law Christine Bedford and her friend Laura Mulford and hitting two Capital Police officers.

Police didn't say why Hunnings allegedly had the knife on him when he entered the courthouse.
