BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -

Police in Alabama have fatally shot two suspects following separate shooting incidents 75 miles apart, one of which left three dead. 

Authorities in Cleburne County said a male suspect was shot in eastern Alabama by police following the fatal shooting of three males at a mobile home park. Police said the suspect led police on a chase that ended at a busy interchange near Interstate 20. They said the suspect was armed with an AK-47 and wounded a police officer during the pursuit. 

The identities of the gunman and the three gunshot victims had not been released late Saturday evening. 

In a separate incident, police said 38-year-old Jason Letts of Jemison opened fire early Saturday morning at a hospital in Birmingham, wounding a police officer and two employees before being shot and killed by another officer.
