Shooter At YouTube HQ Is Down

Zero Hedge

Workers have reportedly been seen fleeing the YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California, after shots were reportedly fired at the office.

The scene is no longer active. Law enforcement sources told ABC’s Bay Area affiliate that the suspect is “a white adult female wearing a dark top and a head scarf.” Authorities do not suspect terrorism, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Audio from the police dispatch played on KTVU said a female suspect is down, but police are still looking for a male suspect – though earlier reports said there was only one shooter.

Around 1 pm PT, tweets bearing text messages claiming an active shooter had entered the building emerged.

The San Bruno city manager told Dow Jones that there is “no immediate threat” at YouTube HQ, located at 901 Cherry Ave. The San Matteo County PD appears to be the department in charge, according to KTVU.

The local ATF office is also responding, along with several other agencies. the California Department of Emergency Services has been asked to respond.

Police haven’t provided much in the way of information, but footage from KTVU’s news helicopter appeared to show a body covered with a tarp.

In a harrowing account posted to twitter, one employee said he saw blood on the floor and the stairs as he was fleeing the building.

Information available via Citizen said police have cleared the first, second and third floor and that the suspect may have shot him or herself – though this has not been confirmed.

 

 

According to unconfirmed reports, police have swarmed the property where two people have been shot so far.

Police could be seen outside YouTube HQ frisking and searching evacuees before letting them go to make sure they aren’t the shooter or involved in the shooting.

Police haven’t released much information yet. But a KTVU reporter talked with a witness who said they are evacuating nearby buildings and is affecting businesses across the office park where YouTube HQ is located. However, Connie Jackson, the San Bruno city manager, said no other businesses had been impacted.

Another witness said the shooting began at some kind of party inside the building. The shooting allegedly began inside YouTube HQ. The witness said he heard or saw three people shot, including one woman whom he said died after being shot multiple times with “no mercy.”

San Francisco General Hospital has confirmed that they have received between three and five patients. Stanford hospital has said it has received four or five patients. Neither hospital released any information about the condition of the victims.

A witness told KTVU said she heard a series of gunshots from her backyard which is near the office park where the YouTube headquarters is located. She described the shots as happening in clusters, with successive rounds sounding further away.

Her husband reportedly saw people running out of the HQ with their hands up.

 

 

The suspect is allegedly a female.

A witness who works at the nearby Carl’s Junior helped treat a young woman who was shot in the left leg, and used a tourniquet to stop the bleeding. Several other witnesses described her limping into the Carl’s Junior.
