After 5 Years, Alabama University Killer Apologizes for the First Time

An Alabama professor who pleaded guilty to killing three colleagues and wounding three others has apologized for the first time, NBC News reported.

Amy Bishop, a biology professor, shot up a faculty meeting in 2010 at the University of Alabama-Huntsville.

In a court filing obtained by NBC station WAFF of Huntsville and The Huntsville Times, Bishop included a handwritten note calling the shootings a “terrible crime” and said she was sorry for the victims and their families.

Biology professors Maria Ragland Davis and Adriel Johnson and department Chairman Gopi K. Podila were killed. Two other professors and a staff assistant were wounded.
