Birmingham Police: Gunman dead, 2 injured in hospitals shooting

The incident began at about 7 p.m. on Wednesday when officers received reports of an active shooter at the hospital, which is located on 11th Avenue South near downtown Birmingham.

Lt. Peter Williston, a spokesman for the Birmingham Police Department, said investigators were still sorting out what had occurred.

Birmingham Police have released the names of both victims from Wednesday's shooting at UAB Highlands Hospital.

A man who worked for Steris, a contractor who manages the hospital's sterile supplies, was wounded and listed in critical condition.

Williston said at a press conference Thursday morning that the shooting stemmed from an employee relations issue.

Police are still trying to determine what led up to the shooting and how the suspect got into the hospital.
