Officials say three people were killed and three hurt when someone opened fire in a University of Alabama-Huntsville faculty meeting.

University spokesman Ray Garner said Friday night a suspect in the shooting was in custody and another person had been detained for questioning.

Garner said the three people killed were faculty members and the wounded were two faculty members and a staff member. No students were involved.

Dr. Amy Bishop, a Harvard-trained neuroscientist who had been at the university since 2003, was taken into custody. Her husband was also detained. They were not immediately charged with any crime.

    well lets see she apparently killed her younger brother when she was only 19 years old back in 1986 and yet now she has killed three more totally innocent people and injured several more not to mention the pshycilogical distress everyone who witnessed this will have to deal with for the rest of their lives. so now what put, her in jail and feed her for life. that is exactly what is wrong with the world today. with all the eye wittnesses, all they need is a tree, a rope, a wagon and horse because back in the old days they didnt feed and house cold blooded murderers for life without parole. hang her and this comes from a white man that has the same opinion no matter what color or race the murderer shall be. it is just plain justice.

    What a sad and tragic event. The reports say this woman was a neuroscientist--what on earth would possess someone to commit such a heinous crime?
