Andre Turner, had one thing on his mind Friday afternoon.
The 48-year-old walked into a Southern Southern Edison complex that houses more than 1,000 SCE employees and methodically opened fire on members of management.
"He told some people to leave and he was very deliberate about who he shot," a source told the Los Angeles Times.
Turner used a semi-automatic handgun to slay Henry Serrano, 56, and Robert Scott Lindsay, 53, both men, managers in the information technology department, had been employed with Edison over 25 years.
Angela Alvarez, 46, and Abhay Pimpale were also shot by Turner before he turned the gun on himself, committing suicide at the scene of his crimes, confirmed Los Angeles County coroner's Lt. Larry Dietz to The Associated Press. Turner had been an Edison employee for seven years, utility spokesman Steven Conroy said.
NBC Los Angeles reports that foreclosure may have been at the root of Turner’s rage:
“Citing real estate website zillow.com, the Riverside Press-Enterprise reported that Turner's 5,000 square-foot home was purchased in 2004 for $711,000. It was reportedly put up for sale in November for $590,000. “
The gunman’s wife, Jean Turner, released the following statement to KTLA:
"We are in shock and still trying to process this tragic event. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families."
Authorities were questioning employees about possible motive as late as Sunday afternoon while one of Turner’s victims still lay recovering in the hospital.
