Gunman opens fire in Alabama hospital; 1 employee dead

A gunman shot two people at an Alabama hospital on Wednesday evening before killing himself, according to Birmingham police. The other victim, Tim Isley, is being treated for his wounds but is listed in stable condition, reports CNN.

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. He is an employee of STERIS, an infection prevention company that UAB contracts with.

Lt. Peter Williston confirmed the gunman is dead. The gunman is being described as a disgruntled worker, according to the AP.

The male shooter was found with a self-inflicted gunshot in a room on the third floor's emergency wing.

UAB students were asked to shelter in place but were given the all-clear by UAB around 7:40 p.m.

Kevin Love: Eyeing March 23 return
So Love could be ahead of that timeline, but not by much.Love has missed 19 games, and the Cavs are 10-9 without him. The Lakers' exciting performance against Cleveland underlined that notion, for whatever it's worth in James' mind.

When staff was led to UAB Police headquarters, a woman was said to have had a panic attack and needed to be examined by medics.

H.R. Watson of Birmingham Fire and Rescue told news reporters one victim was in critical condition with multiple wounds.

UAB tweeted late Wednesday that all surgeries scheduled for Thursday where the shooting occurred were being canceled.

Williston said at a press conference Thursday morning that the shooting stemmed from an employee relations issue.
