Witness recounts moments before fatal Hamilton shooting

Good evening from the desk of Jonathan Hardison! Here are some of the stories we're working on for you tonight.

Community in shock

Why did a Marion County man open fire inside a lawyer's office and an accountant's office in Hamilton, killing two people? He's in UAB Hospital tonight and we've got a team on the ground in Hamilton covering this story including Josh Gauntt, who is talking to a woman who works in one of those offices and was in there just a short time before the gunshots started this morning. Her story tonight on WBRC Fox6 News at 9.

Fairfield in a bind

Bankruptcy or being annexed into another city. Those are the options Fairfield's mayor says the city has if it can't replace lost tax revenue, and tonight new on WBRC FOX6 News at 10, at least one Birmingham city councilor says the idea of annexing Fairfield into the Birmingham city limits is a non-starter. Sherea Harris is looking at why Fairfield may have a hard time convincing a city or Jefferson County to take it over.
