OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) -- A shooting at an east Alabama community college on Wednesday killed one woman, wounded two others and injured a child who was hit by flying glass, authorities said.
Police had a suspect though he wasn't in custody and said the gunfire resulted from a domestic dispute.
Photos and video from the scene showed a Toyota minivan with three windows shot out in a parking lot outside a building at Southern Union Community College in Opelika. Student Quay Thomas said he heard nine shots.
"It was terrifying," said the 17-year-old. "I wouldn't think anything like this would happen at a college campus."
Police said a 63-year-old woman was killed, and women ages 36 and 94 were shot. The 4-year-old hit with glass was being treated at a hospital.
The victims' names were not immediately released. City spokeswoman Jan Gunter said officers were still trying to sort out details but believed the afternoon shooting was related to a dispute between a man and a woman.
"Preliminarily they were pretty sure they knew who the shooter was and what the problem was," she said.
The school closed the campus for the rest of the day.
