Three people were wounded after a female shooter opened fire at YouTube’s headquarters in San Bruno, California yesterday, April 3.
According to FoxNews.com, the shooter has been identified as 39-year-old Nasim Aghdam. She killed herself after injuring three people.
Aghdam reportedly had a vendetta against YouTube for allegedly censoring her videos. She accused YouTube of trying to “censor and suppress people who speak the truth.”
"BE AWARE!" she reportedly wrote, "Dictatorship exists in all countries but with different tactics! They only care for personal short term profits & do anything to reach their goals."
Her YouTube account promoted veganism and YouTube allegedly censored graphic videos of animals being skinned alive.
When police spoke to Agdham’s father, he warned them that she may have been heading to YouTube’s headquarters because she “hated” the company.
As ChristianHeadlines.com previously reported, several YouTube employees tweeted about the terrifying incident while their workplace was on lockdown.
FoxNews.com quotes YouTube employee Dianna Arnspiger who was present during the shooting:
"It was a woman and she was firing her gun. And I just said, 'Shooter!,' and everybody started running," Arnspiger said. "It was terrifying," she added.
