Disgruntled Worker Killed Nurse In Alabama Hospital

Police in Alabama said a gunman opened fire at the UAB Highlands hospital in Birmingham on Wednesday night leaving two employees wounded

He said the other victim is in "stable" condition.

Police say one man is dead and another is in critical condition after a gunman opened fire at an Alabama hospital before fatally shooting himself.

Birmingham Police Public Information Officer Peter Williston described the shooting as an "employee relation issue" during a morning press conference.

Students at the University of Alabama Birmingham were told to shelter in place on Wednesday night before the all clear was given around 7:45 p.m.

UAB Highlands is a campus of UAB Hospital, part of the medical school at the university.

Police responded to an active shooter situation just before 7 p.m. March 14 and said they found two men with gunshot wounds and another man who shot and killed himself.

Tom Crean Finalizing Deal To Be Georgia Head Coach
According to Seth Emerson of DawgNation.com, Georgia contacted former IN coach Tom Crean on Wednesday to discuss the position. The Dawgs were reportedly close to hiring former Ohio State coach Thad Matta this week before talks broke off.

Ken Lucas says his father was on the second floor of the hospital when the shooting took place.

UAB Highlands Hospital Tyler Greer said both of the deceased were employees of the hospital. His fears grew when a phone call with his fiancee went dead after she was confronted by SWAT on an elevator.

"We understand you want answers, but please give us the time to find those answers out", Lt. Williston said.

We do not know the identity of the shooter at this time.

The shootings forced the hospital to cancel all of Thursday's scheduled surgeries.
