One person killed, four people injured in shooting at YouTube headquarters

One person was killed and four others were injured in a shooting at YouTube’s headquarters in San Bruno, California on Tuesday afternoon.

The alleged shooter has been identified as Nasim Aghdam, a 39-year-old woman from Riverside, California. She was found deceased at the scene from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Three victims suffered gun-shot related injuries and a fourth sustained an ankle injury while fleeing from the chaotic scene. None of the injuries are believed to be life threatening, according to San Bruno police.

Earlier reports suggested that the shooting may have been a domestic dispute between the shooter and her boyfriend. However, according to ABC 7 News San Francisco, Aghdam had no relationship with anyone at the YouTube facility. Instead, it appears Aghdam was a disgruntled user of YouTube who may have been motivated after her channel saw a decline in viewership over the past few months.
