(CNN) -- Three people were killed and at least one was wounded Friday in a shooting at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, a spokesman for the university said.
A female shooting suspect was in custody, said the spokesman, Ray Garner.
A spokeswoman for Huntsville Hospital said it had received three patients in critical condition from the shooting.
Trent Willis, chief of staff to Mayor Tommy Battle, said the incident occurred about 4:15 p.m. in Shelby Hall, which police were still searching.
"We do have some witnesses," he said. The 6-year-old, $60 million facility houses the Chemistry Department and is named for U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby of Alabama and his wife, Dr. Annette Shelby.
I am from the American CIA and I have a radio in my head. I am going to kill you.
Interesting the building is named for that fuckwad Shelby.
I got a news text from CNN saying that 5 people were killed, not 3.

On the local news it said that the female shooter was a faculty member who opened fire in a staff meeting after learning she would not be receiving tenure.
I figured it'd be a student.
she also apparently shot and killed her brother 24 years ago.. it was ruled an "accident".. i'd look back into that case..

Professor accused in Ala. slayings shot her brother in Mass. 24 years ago - Local News Updates - The Boston Globe
The University of Alabama biology professor accused of slaying three of her colleagues fatally shot her brother in Massachusetts more than two decades ago, a local police chief said today, while at the same time raising troubling questions about how the long-ago incident was handled.
The Boston Globe reported at the time that Amy Bishop had accidentally shot her 18-year-old brother, Seth M. Bishop, an accomplished violinist who had won a number of science awards, in Braintree.
Braintree Police Chief Paul Frazier confirmed today at a news conference that Amy Bishop had fatally shot her brother. But Frazier offered a different account of the shooting, saying Bishop had shot her brother during an argument and was being booked by police when the police chief at the time ordered the booking process stopped and Bishop released to her mother.
Frazier said he was basing his statements on the memories of one of his officers who was on the department at the time and had arrested Bishop. He said the records from the case have been missing since at least 1987.
"I don't want to use the word 'coverup,' but this does not look good," he said.
Then-Police Chief John Polio told the Globe in 1986 that Bishop, who was 20 at the time, had asked her mother, Judith, in the presence of her brother how to unload a round from the chamber of a 12-gauge shotgun.
Polio told the Globe that while Amy Bishop was handling the weapon, it fired, wounding Seth Bishop in the abdomen. He was pronounced dead at a hospital 46 minutes after the Dec. 6, 1986 shooting.
"Every indication at this point in time leads us to believe it was an accidental shooting," Polio said at the time.
In an interview at his home this afternoon, Polio, 87, said, "There was no coverup." He said he followed all department procedures and then-District Attorney William Delahunt's office conducted an inquiry and the decision was made not to file charges.
Polio at times fumbled over names and did not remember some details of the case. He was not aware until told by reporters that Bishop was accused of shooting six people in Alabama.
Delahunt, who is now a US representative, could not immediately be reached for comment this afternoon.
But Frazier said the media had been fed an incorrect story. He said that there was an argument at the home on Hollis Avenue and Amy Bishop had fired three shots, then fled the house and pointed the shotgun at a motorist in an attempted carjack. She was then arrested at gunpoint by officers.
In Friday's shooting, Bishop, 42, a Harvard-educated neurobiologist, allegedly shot and killed three of her colleagues and wounded three others in an apparent tenure dispute at the Huntsville campus, the Associated Press reports.
^ That's the picture all over the news here. Bitch has serious Crazy Eyes.
Maybe she'll start enjoying a long tenure in Tutwiler soon.
