Southern California Edison Shooting, Terrified employees hid under desks and barricaded themselves behind locked doors after a utility company office worker went on a shooting rampage, killing two co-workers and critically wounding two others before taking his own life, police said.
The shooting around 1:30 p.m. Friday at Southern California Edison offices in a business park outside Los Angeles forced a lockdown of a large office complex and nearby schools as officers from surrounding cities and the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s SWAT team responded.
“This is one of the most horrible days in our company’s history,” said Edison International Chairman and CEO Ted Craver. “We are deeply saddened by today’s tragic events.”
A man and a woman were wounded by gunfire and were listed in critical condition at local hospitals, said Sheriff’s Lt. Holly Francisco.
Three men were killed in the shooting — two bodies were found on the scene and a third died en route to a hospital. Four of the shooting victims were company employees and the fifth was a contract worker.
