    HUNTSVILLE, AL - Police are still searching the floors of the Shelby Center at UAH to make sure the building is secure after several people were reported shot there.

    Police may have a suspect in custody but they have not confirmed that. The initial call indicated as many as 10 people may have been shot, but paramedics have only reported two people needing an ambulance. Both of them are in critical condition.


    UPDATE: 4:49 - Local Huntsville media have confirmed 3 dead, and one injured. Refresh for the latest version as we update.

    I guess the life stresses hit someone and they went nuts. I hope it isn't too bad of a spree. They say it was a woman.:wow:

    This is getting ridiculous. So sorry to hear this. It seems like all these shootings tend to take place in "gun free zones" like universities, etc. Whatever, this isn't a time for me to get on my soap box, I'll be praying for them.

    Murder illegal? Guns on campus are illegal! Why would there be a shooting when guns aren't even ALLOWED!!!!!

    It's a tried and true method of getting your 15 minutes in front of the whole world.

    If the media would stop reporting their names and pics and just said "some ******* without a brain" and showed that pic of the guy with his head up his butt, maybe these idiots would stop.

    "Authorities said a female faculty member during a Biology faculty meeting learned she would not receive tenure. She then pulled out a gun and started shooting."
