A biology professor at the University of Alabama opened fired Friday after a faculty meeting killing three colleagues and injuring three others.
The professor, Amy Bishop, a Harvard-educated biologist, has been charged with capital murder, the The Chronicle reports.
According to the Christian Science Monitor, friends and colleagues say Bishop was upset about failure to receive tenure at the University.
The Boston Globe reports that this is not the first violent incident the Professor had been involved in. She also shot and killed her teenage brother when we was 20 years old.
Much of the public has attributed the shooting to pressure to make tenure which has been increasingly diffuclt given the competition and economic times, the Christian Science Monitor reports.
Of those injured, one remains in critical conditions, while two are in stable conditions, The Chronicle reports.
