A photo of Andre Turner, the employee who opened fire on his colleagues at Southern California Edison in Irwindale on Friday, has been made public.Turner, 48, fatally shot Henry Serrano, 56, and Robert Lindsay, 53, and wounded Abhay Pimpale, 38, and Angela Alvarez, 46. Turner took his own life.

Today those Edison offices are closed, and yesterday, hundreds gathered outside the building for a vigil, and to share their grief. Among them was Turner's widow, who had no idea her husband was the shooter, and expressed her shock and sadness to the co-workers and loved ones who Turner killed or injured.
