Nasim Aghdam, of Southern California aged 39 as identified by US media approached the Silicon Valley campus around lunchtime on Tuesday and began to fire before entering the building of Google owned YouTube. The woman shot one man and two women in the incident before she apparently committed suicide. Hospital officials said, the 36-year-old man is in critical condition and two women, aged 32 and 27, are in serious and fair condition. The fourth person hurt suffered a sprain in his ankle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMHsKtaVVvk Source: YouTube/CNN Nasim Aghdam’s father said he had warned the police that the lady might be heading to the video-sharing site's offices because she "hated" the company. Aghdam was angry at YouTube because it had stopped paying her for videos she posted on the platform, her father told the Bay Area News Group. Sundar Pichai, the chief executive of YouTube’s parent company, Google, called the shooting an “unimaginable tragedy” and said the company was working to support the victims and their families, in an email to Google staff. Other tech company executives, including Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Apple’s Tim Cook and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, sent messages of support on Twitter, with some, including Uber’s Dara Khosrowshahi, calling for an end to gun violence. Chris Dale, YouTube’s global head of communications also expressed “a debt of gratitude” to officers and first responders when he appeared at an afternoon press conference with police.
We are an incredibly tight knit community within YouTube, where it feels like a family. Today, it feels like the entire community of YouTube and all of the employees were victims of this crime.
