An unnamed gunman shot three people at a hospital recently. The man opened fire at the hospital where he managed to shoot to hospital employees.


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.”

He added that officials weren't yet clear whether there was a connection between the three individuals. Waton stated that police still had a lot to investigate.


UAB Highlands is a campus of UAB Hospital. It is part of the medical school at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

UAB tweeted late Wednesday that all surgeries scheduled for Thursday where the shooting occurred were being canceled. No clear motive has been reported for the gunman’s actions.

The investigation is still ongoing.
