    3 Dead in Shooting at University of Alabama Campus

    Sad news.


    3 Dead in Shooting at University of Alabama Campus - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com

    Officials at the University of Alabama's Huntsville campus say three people have been killed and another injured in a campus shooting.

    University spokesman Ray Garner says a woman is in custody but he could not identify her or any of the victims.

    Sophomore Erin Johnson tells The Huntsville Times a biology faculty meeting was under way when she heard screams coming from the room.

    The shooting happened Friday afternoon in the university's Shelby Center, a science building. University police secured the building and students were cleared from it.

    The Huntsville campus has about 7,500 students in northern Alabama, not far from the Tennessee line.

    When if the really wanted you safe, they would enforce mandatory self-defense and firearm training for all their students, as well as mandatory requirements to carry a handgun, shotgun, or preferably an assult rifle at all times...............................

    They actually have a good number of self-defense classes that a lot of freshman take. Plus on our school IDs we have like numbers to BU police, Boston PD, and the number for escorts if it is late and we don't want to walk back to our dorms alone. And then any crime that happens within like two miles of school we hear about.

    Yeah sure, college students with Assault Rifles. I bet you if those students were armed, the number of deaths from the confusion alone would have been more than those who were actually killed by the gunwoman.

    A woman opened fire during a biology faculty meeting at the University of Alabama's Huntsville campus Friday, killing three faculty members and injuring two other faculty members and a staff member.
    Sounds like it was faculty, not students...
