3 dead, 3 hurt in Alabama campus shooting 
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – A woman opened fire during a biology faculty meeting at the University of Alabama's Huntsville campus Friday, killing three biology professors and injuring three other employees at the school, officials said.

The shooter was caught outside the Shelby Center, a science building, without incident, and no students were harmed, according to university spokesman Ray Garner. Local media reported the shooter was a faculty member, though Garner said he could not identify her. Officials said a man was also being detained.

Police said no charges had been filed and they were interviewing the woman suspect and a man identified as "a person of interest."

University spokesman Ray Garner said the three killed were Gopi K. Podila, the chairman of the Department of Biological Sciences, and two other faculty members, Maria Ragland Davis and Adriel Johnson.

Two others are in critical condition, and a third who was wounded was upgraded to fair condition. The injured were identified as department members Luis Cruz-Vera and Joseph Leahy and staffer Stephanie Monticello. Their specific conditions were not released.

Sammie Lee Davis said his wife, Maria Ragland Davis, was a researcher who had tenure at the university.

In a brief phone interview, he said he was told his wife was at a meeting to discuss the tenure status of another faculty member who got angry and started shooting...

She's currently denying the shooting took place and that the victims are still alive. Looks as if she is going to go for a not guilty by reason of insanity defense. Being a former rights advocate for the mentally ill in Alabama, I can say that is going to be difficult to do. She is going to need to do more than claim things didn't happen to get that sort of ruling here.
Also this evening the local news out of Birmingham was reporting that this is not the first time she was involved in a shooting incident. Years ago she shot her brother but it was ruled an accident and she was released. It was stated that given the events on Friday, that case was being looked into again.
What I expect will happen is her lawyer will plea bargin her down to a lesser sentence which will prevent her from facing the death penalty, I figure this will also include some form of mental health treatment and a lengthy incarseration.

Latest on this is it now looks as if she was a suspect who sent a bomb to a Harvard professor in 1993.
