IRWINDALE, Calif., Dec. 17 (UPI) -- An employee who killed two people at a Southern California Edison office before taking his own life targeted his victims, a witness said.

The shooter was identified Saturday as Andre Turner, 48, of Norco, the Los Angeles Times reported. He shot four co-workers at the company's information and technology office in Irwin Friday afternoon, including two who were critically injured.

"He told some people to leave and he was very deliberate about who he shot," a source told the Times. "He did not like management."

The dead men were identified as Henry Serrano, 56, of Walnut, and Robert Lindsay, 53, of Chino Hills. The injured, whose names have not been released, were a man and woman.

Investigators were trying to track Turner's movements before the shooting. They said he was at work in the morning and were trying to determine if he left the building at some point.

Sheriff's homicide detectives recovered a semiautomatic handgun at the scene, the newspaper said.
