Edison offices remain closed after deadly shooting

December 19, 2011

On the first workday since two Southern California Edison employees were fatally shot during a coworker's rampage, the Irwindale offices where the attack took place will remain closed Monday.

Andre Turner, 48, opened fire Friday with a semiautomatic handgun, killing two and injuring two others, before turning the gun on himself, authorities said.

Robert Scott Lindsay, 53, of Chino Hills, and Henry Serrano, 56, of Walnut -- both managers in Edison's information technology department -- were killed.

Turner, an Edison employee from Norco, also seriously injured Angela Alvarez, 46, of Glendale, and Abhay Pimpale, 38, of Montebello. Pimpale was released from the hospital Sunday.

Hundreds of Edison employees gathered Sunday for a vigil outside the complex.

"We are all so shaken by what happened," said company spokeswoman Vanessa McGrady of the "sad, sad event" attended by about 250 employees. "We are just brokenhearted, and our hearts go out to all the families that are affected."

The shooter's wife released a short statement Sunday, offering her sympathy for the victims.

"We are in shock and still trying to process this tragic event," Jean Turner wrote. "Our hearts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families."
