Funerals begin for victims in Alabama mass shooting

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Memorial services are beginning for the
three people killed in last week's shooting at the University of
Alabama in Huntsville.

A private funeral was scheduled Thursday for G.K. Podila, the
chairman of the Biology Department at the school.

A memorial service also is set for faculty members Adreil Johnson and Maria Ragland.

It will be held on campus and sponsored by the Council for African American Faculty, which the two helped found at the school.

Funerals will be held Friday and Saturday for Johnson and
Ragland.

The three were killed in a shooting that injured three others inside a classroom building at UA Huntsville.

Professor Amy Bishop is being held without bond on charges of capital murder and attempted murder.
