Police searching for answers in active shooter situation at UAB Highlands Hospital

2 people injured suspect dead after shooting at UAB Highlands Hospital

Birmingham police responded to an active shooter situation and say the shooter is down.

The son of Springville mayor William Isley is recovering in the ICU Thursday after Birmingham Police say a UAB employee opened fire inside UAB Highlands Hospital Wednesday evening shortly before 7 p.m., seriously wounding Tim Isley and killing UAB nurse Nancy Swift, 63.

Williston says the shooter died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Birmingham Police Public Information Officer Peter Williston described the shooting as an "employee relation issue" during a morning press conference. He said the other victim is in "stable" condition.

The victims are believed to have been on the second floor.

Both Swift and the shooter were employees of UAB.

A job-related dispute led to a health care worker opening fire inside a hospital in a shooting that left two people dead and another critically injured, authorities said Thursday.

All surgeries scheduled for Thursday at UAB Highlands Hospital have been canceled, according to UAB.
