WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) -- The U.S. Marshals Service says a man with an assault-type rifle fired 15 to 20 shots at the federal courthouse in Wheeling. W.Va., before security officers returned fire.

The CBS affiliate in Wheeling, WTRF, is reporting the gunman is dead.

Chief deputy Mike Claxton of the Marshals Service in northern West Virginia says one officer was hurt by shattered glass inside the courthouse during Wednesday's shooting.

Wheeling Hospital confirmed to WTRF three people were admitted with injuries from the incident.

WTRF also reports witnesses saw the gunman reload during the shooting.

Claxton says the gunman was in a parking lot across from the courthouse downtown. He says officials are attempting to determine a motive.
