The police in Alabama say that a “labor dispute” was at the basis of a recording in a hospital in Birmingham that left two dead and one person wounded.

Birmingham Police spokesman Peter Willison said Thursday that investigators were still trying to determine why the shooter fired at two persons on Wednesday before the weapon on himself.

The shooter and one of the victims died. UAB Highlands Hospital Tyler Greer said both of the deceased were the employees of the hospital. The third victim was in critical condition in the hospital and worked for a company that contracted services to the hospital.

UAB Highlands is a campus of UAB Hospital, which is part of the medical school of the University of Alabama in Birmingham.

Police say one man is dead and another is in critical condition after a gunman opened fire in an Alabama hospital for fatally shooting himself. Birmingham police Lt. Peter Williston said Thursday morning that one victim is in stable condition. “Unfortunately, I have the report of the second victim did not survive and was pronounced died during a surgery,” he said.

Captain H. R. Watson of the Birmingham Fire and Rescue said authorities were uncertain about the shooter, the relationship between the victims and whether they worked in the hospital.

UAB tweeted late Wednesday that all operations are planned for Thursday, where the shooting took place, were cancelled.
