San Bruno police say the woman who shot three people at YouTube's headquarters before turning the gun on herself legally purchased a pistol from a dealer in San Diego in January. The other, a man in his 30s, remains in serious condition, according to a hospital statement emailed to NPR on Wednesday morning. Family and friends said Wednesday would have been Aghdam's birthday.

One of the witnesses told Fox News that he wished he was armed.

"We know that she was upset with YouTube", Barberini said, telling reporters that there were no clear targets in her attack. In one post she says: "Internet crackdown and filtering is increasing in the West". The gun was registered in her name.

SAN BRUNO Throughout her life, Nasim Aghdam found notoriety - even before she carried a Smith & Wesson 9mm handgun and a long-simmering vendetta into YouTube headquarters.

ABC News, citing unnamed law enforcement sources, said the suspect was 35 to 40 years old, and lived in Southern California.

"They were just flawless neighbors", Rundell said. Her brother said they got a call from police after they had located her sleeping in her auto in Mountain View.

At the same time, Aghdam left little doubt about her grievance with YouTube. Aghdam didn't appear to be a threat to herself or others, police spokeswoman Katie Nelson said.

The videos have become central to the motive authorities have settled on for the shooting: Aghdam's anger with the policies of YouTube - the world's biggest online video website.

The license plate on a vehicle towed from YouTube's campus Tuesday is reportedly registered to Aghdam.

The family has since released an official statement acknowledging that attack, while also extending their sincerest sympathies to the victims who were hurt because of Aghdam.

YouTube Shooting Suspect Nasim Aghdam uploaded this video to her Facebook account - criticizing the company for age-restricting, filtering and demonetizing her videos. Aghdam's father stated that she may have been in the area because of this.


In a screenshot of the email uploaded on June 27, 2017, Aghdam rails against "discrimination and hatred problems against me", complaining of a "huge drop in views" after she began uploading videos in Farsi and Turkish. In both shootings, people told law enforcement agencies about a potential danger. It's unclear whether that message was passed on to police.

Police have previously said Aghdam went to a gun range before arriving at YouTube.

"At this point, we have no indication that she was selecting individuals to fire at", Barberini added. During the shooting, she swapped out a magazine and shot from the second magazine when she killed herself.

Thanawala reported from San Francisco.

Inside, Google several years ago famously outfitted the office with a 3-lane red slide for workers to zoom from one story to another.

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said in a statement, "There are no words to describe how disgusting it was to have an active shooter YouTube today".

Officers and federal agents responding to multiple 911 calls swarmed the company's campus sandwiched between two interstates in the San Francisco Bay Area city of San Bruno.

He got on his skateboard and approached a courtyard, where he saw the shooter yelling, "Come get me".

There was somebody lying nearby on his back with a red stain on his stomach that appeared to be from a bullet wound.

The YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California came under weapons fire on Tuesday, April 3, which resulted in three injuries and one death. He jumped on his skateboard and took off. The Mountain View police department reportedly did not share the information with San Bruno police.

Police officials said the building would be closed to normal business for a couple of days, and employees would work at other campuses.
