Three Dead in Shooting at University of Alabama-Huntsville

(WALL STREET JOURNAL) — A woman opened fire during a meeting of teaching staff at the University of Alabama’s Huntsville campus Friday, killing three faculty members and wounding three others, according to university spokesman Ray Garner.

A professor was in custody Friday night in connection with the shooting, but Mr. Garner said he couldn’t yet name her or the victims, or provide a possible motive. Local television media reported that the shooter was a female faculty member who learned during a biology tenure meeting that she wouldn’t receive tenure, and pulled out a gun and started shooting.
