7. I grew up there...
Fox 6 are not flaming conservatives. Besides, the story was reported by some downstate stations as Opelika is 105 mi SE of Birmingham. It's unfortunate that it happened at that particular school, I know quite well, but this could have been Insert Name Here.

4. Updated article - 4 Year old injured by flying glass - appears domestic dispute
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 06:22 PM by Viva_La_Revolution
OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) -- A shooting at an east Alabama community college on Wednesday killed one woman, wounded two others and injured a child who was hit by flying glass, authorities said.

Police had a suspect though he wasn't in custody and said the gunfire resulted from a domestic dispute.

Photos and video from the scene showed a Toyota minivan with three windows shot out in a parking lot outside a building at Southern Union Community College in Opelika. Student Quay Thomas said he heard nine shots.

"It was terrifying," said the 17-year-old. "I wouldn't think anything like this would happen at a college campus."

Police said a 63-year-old woman was killed, and women ages 36 and 94 were shot. The 4-year-old hit with glass was being treated at a hospital.
