Authorities say a woman believed to be the shooter at YouTube headquarters is dead of a self-inflicted gunshot and four others have been wounded.
San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini told reporters Tuesday that the victims have gunshot wounds and were taken to hospitals.
A spokesman for San Francisco General Hospital says it received three patients. Spokesman Brent Andrew says a 36-year-old man is in critical condition, a 32-year-old woman is in serious condition and a 27-year-old woman is in fair condition.
He says the hospital is expecting more patients but doesn’t know their conditions.
Here is a quote from a witness at the scene:
“Man, it was like 2-3 shots. But then like 30 seconds after that, 40 seconds after that, then I saw a girl running out, she was shot in the leg. Then the other people behind me opened the doors and let her in and they grabbed a bunch of napkins. So, I come back and check on the girl, ask is she all right, yea, yea, she got shot in the leg. Then I ran back over there, and I am looking inside. Then a guy goes, he just shot another person. And that person got shot 10 times, I mean.”
Another witness told KRON4’s Gabe Slate a woman who was shot at the headquarters crawled into the Carl’s Jr. next door.
The witness did not want to be identified.
A YouTube employee says the fire alarm went off at the company’s headquarters in Northern California and workers didn’t realize it was an active shooting.
Senior software engineer Zach Vorhies said he and others were calmly leaving the building when he saw a shooter in a courtyard yelling, “Come at me, or come get me.”
Vorhies said he froze, then noticed a victim on his back with what looked like a gunshot wound to his stomach. Vorhies says an officer with an assault rifle then came through a security door.
Another YouTube employee says she saw a woman open fire at the company’s headquarters in Northern California.
Dianna Arnspiger said she was on the second floor Tuesday when she heard gunshots, ran to the window and saw a woman firing a gun on a patio below.
Arnspiger says she called out, “‘Shooter,’ and everybody started running.” She and others hid in a conference room for an hour while someone called 911 repeatedly for updates. She says, “it was terrifying.”
