HUNTSVILLE, AL (WBRC) - Classes resume Monday at the University of Alabama in Huntsville more than a week after police say a biology professor went on a shooting rampage. Three faculty members were killed and three were wounded.
Amy Bishop-Anderson is behind bars charged with murder and attempted murder for the shootings.
Counselors will be positioned across campus to provide support for at least a week. Students and other members of the community gathered for a fellowship event last night to prepare themselves for the return to school.
The last of three professors killed in the shooting has been laid to rest. The funeral for Dr. Maria Ragland-Davis was held Saturday in Huntsville. Dr. Ragland-Davis was an assistant professor of biological sciences at UAH since 2002.
Two faculty members remain in critical condition following the shooting. According to their family members, both are making progress.
