A day after the Newtown, Connecticut tragedy, a man opened fire at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama. He wounded an officer and two employees before being fatally shot by police.
Birmingham Police Sgt. Johnny Williams says the officer and employees suffered injuries that are not considered life-threatening.
Williams says police were called because a man with a gun was walking through St. Vincent’s Hospital on Saturday morning. When he was confronted by officers, he started shooting and wounded one of the officers. That’s when the second officer shot and killed the man.
