BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Police in Alabama have fatally shot two suspects following separate shooting sprees 75 miles apart that left several others, including two officers, wounded.

Authorities said a man opened fire early Saturday at a hospital in Birmingham, wounding a police officer and two employees before being shot and killed by another officer.

In a separate incident, gunfire erupted in eastern Alabama between police and a suspect armed with an assault rifle.

Oxford police Lt. L.G. Owens told The Anniston Star that authorities chased the suspect after a shooting in Cleburne County on Saturday. The chase ended at a busy interchange near Interstate 20.

Police said SWAT team members shot and killed the suspect.
