An Indian-American professor was among the three professors killed during a Friday afternoon shootout on the campus of the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
Professor Gopi K Podila, the chairman of the Department of Biological Sciences and two other faculty members, Maria Ragland Davis and Adriel Johnson, were killed on Friday. Three others were also injured in the incident.
A biology professor, Amy Bishop, has been taken into custody in connection with the incident. It is alleged that she was denied tenure.
