The University of Alabama at Huntsville is mourning the loss of three faculty members in the Department of Biological Sciences who were killed Friday when Amy Bishop, an assistant professor there, went on a shooting spree at a faculty meeting.

The dead are Gopi K. Podila, department chair, and Maria Ragland Davis and Adriel D. Johnson Sr., both associate professors.

Three members of the department were also injured. Joseph G. Leahy, another associate professor in the department, was in critical condition at Huntsville Hospital Sunday night. Stephanie Monticciolo, a staff assistant, was also in critical condition there. Luis Rogelio Cruz-Vera, an assistant professor, was released from the hospital Saturday.
