YouTube HQ shooting: at least three injured and female suspect Nasim Aghdam dead in apparent suicide


A woman found dead today at the scene of a mass shooting at YouTube’s headquarters in San Bruno is thought to have died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and police believe she may have been the suspect.

A law enforcement source identified the female shooter to KTVU as Nasim Aghdam. Multiple outlets are reporting the woman is from Southern California.

A Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital spokesman confirmed that three patients are being treated for bullet wounds after the shooting.

A 32-year-old woman is in serious condition, a 27-year-old woman is in fair condition and a 36-year-old man is in critical condition.

Another person was injured when they twisted or broke an ankle as they were fleeing the area, Barberini said.

Officials at Stanford Medical Center initially said additional patients were expected there, but both they and San Francisco General Hospital officials have since said no other shooting victims are expected to

Barberini said officers are transitioning from a tactical investigation to a static investigation and will probably be at YouTube through the night.

“There is no immediate threat to the community,” he said.

The police chief said that the shooter used a handgun.

Dr. Andre Campbell, a trauma surgeon at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, said none of the patients had undergone surgery as of this afternoon, but trauma patients’ conditions can change quickly. He said the patients are awake and aware of what happened.

The hospital did not provide any information about the nature or location of the patients’ injuries.
