The incident occurred on March 14, 2018, in the evening according to Fox News. After shooting the two people, the gunman turned the gun on himself.

Of the two hospital employees that were shot, one man is dead and the other one is in critical condition. This was after a gunman opened fire at the Alabama hospital before fatally shooting himself.

WBRC Fox 6 reported that the incident took place on the second floor of the UAB Highlands Hospital at about 7 p.m. on Wednesday. "One victim is in stable condition," Birmingham police Lt. Peter Williston said early on Thursday morning.

Capt. H.R. Waton of the Birmingham Fire and Rescue spoke to reporters. He told them that all three individuals involved were critically injured.

"Unfortunately, I have to report the second victim did not survive and was pronounced deceased during surgery.”
