Police confirm two people were shot Wednesday evening on the second floor of UAB Highlands Hospital in Birmingham before the shooter turned the gun on himself.

Police didn't immediately respond to messages seeking comment.

Officials said the suspect and Swift were both employed by UAB, and the wounded victim worked for Steris, a medical consulting business based in Birmingham.

Peter Williston said police were called at 6:55 p.m. Police found two victims along with the gunman who died of a self-inflicted gunshot, Williston said.

The incident comes just one week after a 17-year-old high school senior in Birmingham was killed in a shooting at Huffman High School.
