The San Bruno Police identified the YouTube shooter as Nasim Aghdam, a 39-year old woman. She is a resident of San Diego, California.
Aghdam opened fire at the YouTube headquarters on Tuesday afternoon. Four people were brought to the hospital for medical treatment. Three of the victims suffered gunshot wounds and the other one sustained an ankle injury.
Police officers found Aghdam dead at the scene from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot. They are still investigating her motive for the shooting and did not find any evidence that she knew or targeted the victims.
Shooter accused YouTube of filtering her video channels
It appears that the YouTube shooter is a disgruntled video publisher. In her personal website, Aghdam condemned the company for allegedly filtering her channels.
She wrote, “There is no free speech in real world & you will be suppressed for telling the truth that is not supported by the system. Videos of targeted users are filtered & merely relegated, so that people can hardly see their videos!
