This one at UAB Highlands hospital, which is actually on part of UAB's "campus" so of course it's a "school shooting"

2 people shot, condition unknown, "suspect down"
Started @ 7:05 local time tonight

    Not buying it.  Can’t have a gun in a hospital.  Didn’t happen.  😶

    I've CCed in the hospital numerous times.  ER has a metal detector.  I've been to UAB medical center, don't recall any metal detectors.

    UAB Highlands (Old South Highlands, then Healthsouth) hospital SUPPOSEDLY had metal detectors, that were in use.

    They're now saying the shooter was an employee, so he probably either 1) knew a way around them or 2) used his employee ID to by-pass them
