IRWINDALE (CBS)  — A CBS2/KCAL9 viewer named Bryan sent us a copy of texts he sent back and forth with his wife who works inside the building where a deadly shooting took place Friday afternoon. Fortunately, their story has a happy ending.

Wife – 1:35: Lots of sirens and now helicopters. Can you see there is anything going on in the Irwindale area?

Me – 1:37: Okay…

Me – 1:38: Nothing on SigAlert

Wife – 1:39: There has been a shooting

Me – 1:39: What??? Where?

> Wife – 1:40: We can’t leave the building

Wife – 1:40: Someone has a gun in or around our building

Wife – 1:40: They have not got the person

Me – 1:40: Can you get to a bathroom? Pull your feet up on a stall and hide! If not, stay low in your cubicle, under your desk! DON’T GO WANDERING AROUND!!

Wife – 1:41: Ok…I love you

Me – 1:41: I love you too…you will be safe…stay sharp…stay low!

Wife – 1:42: Please let me know if you hear anything at all…you need to pick up the girl too **(our daughter)**
