The Bayside town of San Bruno is home to many major tech companies, perhaps none bigger than YouTube. Today this giant company became a giant target for a deadly shooting.
YouTube’s headquarters is located at 901 Cherry Ave. in San Bruno, California and hosts over 1,000 employees making it one of the largest private employers in the area. The “campus” as the headquarters’ grounds is referred to is a massive complex bordering a nearby shopping center and several highly populated roadways.
At the time of writing this article news is scarce, but here is what we know so far.
San Bruno police were called to the scene following several reports of a woman armed with a handgun entering the complex at around 12:46 PM PST on Tuesday and opening fire within.
The woman entered the building with ease, which would be difficult to do if not an employee according to other employees on Twitter but it does not appear that the women is an employee.
San Bruno police and rescue crews announced that 2 females and 1 male were shot and sent to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment. The male being the worst for wear of the group of victims, being in critical condition at the time of the writing of this piece.
As for the shooter, it was confirmed that she died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on the scene after completing her vile act.
Following the shooting, authorities were quick to say that this incident was not being investigated as an act of terrorism, but rather a case of savage domestic violence. Though the FBI has been put on the scene in a backup capacity to assist the local San Bruno police.
What do we know about the shooter? She had several YouTube channels and has posted videos in the past about her frustration with YouTube, claiming they censor her content and prevent her from getting views. As questions remain on the motive, police have said there’s no evidence the shooter knew the victims or that they were specifically targeted.
At 2:30 PST the Police Chief of San Bruno Ed Barberini gave a press conference and announced that police responded to the scene 2 minutes after the calls went out to them, arriving at the scene at 12:48 PM.
The President took to Twitter shortly following Chief Barberini’s press conference posting the following…
Was just briefed on the shooting at YouTube’s HQ in San Bruno, California. Our thoughts and prayers are with everybody involved. Thank you to our phenomenal Law Enforcement Officers and First Responders that are currently on the scene.
