(Newser) – The husband of an Alabama professor accused of fatally shooting three colleagues said today that the couple went to a shooting range near the Huntsville campus recently, but that he didn't know where she got the gun she used for practice. James Anderson's description of Amy Bishop's "normal" demeanor leading up to Friday's shooting at a faculty meeting matched an account by a witness, who said her behavior was ordinary until the shootings

Bishop's husband, James Anderson, said he knew his wife had a gun, but didn't know when or how she got it. "I really don't know how she got it, or where she got it from," he told the AP in an interview at his home. Police have previously said Bishop had no permit for the gun they believe she used in the shooting, and investigators said they didn't know where she got it. It's not clear if that was the same gun that her husband knew about. (Read more Amy Bishop stories.)
