A shooter opened fire at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, CA, Tuesday afternoon, wounding at least three people before taking her own life.

A spokesperson from San Francisco General Hospital also confirmed that it had received at least three victims, one female victim in serious condition, one female victim in fair condition, and a male victim in critical condition. Police say the woman they found dead is believed to have been the shooter.

The San Francisco Chronicle described the victims as two women, ages 32 and 27, and a 36-year-old man. The San Bruno Police Department is now instructing people to stay away from 901 Cherry Avenue, where the company is located.

A YouTube employee told CNN she saw one person shot on the patio where they eat.

According to San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini, officers arrived on the scene at 12.48pm, and found a total of four people injured as described above. Heard shots and saw people running while at my desk.

Television news footage showed people leaving the building in a line, holding their arms in the air.

As more and more reports come in, it seems as though the suspect may be an adult female.

Google, YouTube's parent company, told NBC news in a written statement that it was coordinating with local authorities.


The White House said US President Donald Trump has been briefed on the shooting and that officials are monitoring it, AP reported.

"We were all suddenly aware of a lot of noises, of sounds, people running outside of the room where she was".

Trump himself responded to the shooting a short while later, tweeting, "Was just briefed on the shooting at YouTube's headquarters in San Bruno, California".

The shooter earlier stormed the offices of YouTube prompting terrified workers to run for their lives. "Now barricaded inside a room with coworkers".

"Our thoughts and prayers are with everybody involved", he posted on Twitter. The website's base, at 901 Cherry Avenue in the small city, was surrounded by officers, with the public told to stay away. Hudson said he's become used to hearing about gun violence but has never been so close to it.

After Google bought YouTube, it has maintained a large campus in San Bruno, where many of its top executives work.

Dozens of emergency vehicles quickly converged on the YouTube campus, and police could be seen on televised aerial video systematically frisking several employees leaving the area with their hands raised.

Several groups of armed police officers headed into the building to clear the scene.
