Three people at an Alabama hospital were shot and injured by a gunman who opened fire.

The shooting happened when a St. Vincent’s Hospital employee alerted police to a man walking around the fifth floor of the hospital around 4 a.m. Saturday morning. Two hospital employees and a police officer stepped off the elevator to confront the man and the gunman shot them. A second police office came around a corner and killed the gunman. The victims are not seriously injured.
