A Man Opened Fire in an Alabama Hospital this Morning

This morning, a man opened fire in a Birmingham, Alabama's St. Vincent's Hospital. The unidentified gunman managed to shoot two hospital patients and wound an officer before a second officer shot and killed him. The three people who were shot are now recovering.

The authorities were called after a tipster phoned police to tell them that a man was walking around the hospital with a gun.

"There is a security plan and it was implemented," said a spokesperson for the hospital.

Here's a video of a parrot opening a beer can to make you forget about how agonizingly terrible these past couple hours have been.

Good job parrot, good job.
