(Newser) – A female employee allegedly opened fire today on the University of Alabama campus in Huntsville, killing three and injuring three others. The suspect, who works in the biology department, had just been told she would not receive tenure, reports WAFF, the NBC affiliate in Huntsville. She is in custody and the building, which bears the name of Sen. Richard Shelby, has been cleared. "We believe we have everyone, but we're still checking just to make sure," the police chief told the Huntsville Times.
