State police say a suspect in a double shooting has surrendered after barricading himself for hours in a home in a small Sussex County town.

Police say the 67-year-old man earlier Sunday had released a female the home in Greenwood. At about 8:45 p.m. he surrendered to the Delaware State Police without a struggle.

He's believed to have shot a man and a woman, killing the woman Sunday morning. The hostage had come out the front door of the home and police say she is in good condition.

The body of the slain woman was found on the front lawn. The shot man was hospitalized with arm injuries.

Crisis negotiators worked for the surrender and SWAT teams were at the scene. Several homes were evacuated and roads were closed for a time.
