Three people were wounded and one person was killed at YouTube’s headquarters on Tuesday after a shooter opened fire at the internet company’s building in San Bruno, California.
According to www.inc.com, a female was dead with what police say they believe are self-inflicted wounds, and three other victims with gunshot wounds have been transported to local hospitals, a police officer said in a press conference at the scene.
A spokesperson at San Francisco General Hospital said it had received three patients, including a 36-year-old male in critical condition and a 32-year-old female with serious injuries and a 27-year-old female in fair condition.
One YouTuber, Vadim Lavrusik, tweeted that he had “heard shots and saw people running,” and that he was now “barricaded inside a room with coworkers.”
A spokeswoman for Stanford Hospital told Business Insider that it was expecting 4 to 5 patients from the shooting, though she did not comment on their condition. NBC Bay Area reporting 3-5 people were transported to SF General Hospital.
Police told Business Insider reporters on the scene that there was an active shooter situation and would not let anyone leave the parking lot.
“No one can leave. Thank you. There is a suspect outstanding. You guys are in a safe space,” the officer said.
YouTube product manager Todd Sherman tweeted that he was in a meeting when he heard the rumble of people running in the building, and that someone in the building told him there was “a person with a gun.” He also said he saw blood drips on the floor and stairs on his way out of the building, and that “someone else said that the person shot out the back doors and then shot themselves.”
