Alabama University Shooting

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - The University of Alabama's Huntsville campus is closed tonight after a deadly shooting.

Officials say a woman opened fire during a biology faculty meeting, killing three faculty members and wounding two other faculty members and a staff member.

The shooter is in custody. Local TV stations are reporting she is a faculty member.

No students were involved in the shooting.

A Huntsville Hospital spokesman says two of the wounded are in critical condition and the third is in stable condition.

All students are being encouraged to go home while the police conduct an investigation. The Huntsville campus has about 7,500 students in northern Alabama, not far from the Tennessee line. The city is home to NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center.
