Youtube Shooting: 4 Injured During Incident

Sad to report, a shooter victimized the Youtube offices in San Bruno, Ca, Tuesday afternoon. Multiple injuries and at least one confirmed death during the incident.

Per The Guardian:

The San Bruno police chief said during an afternoon news conference that the fatality, a woman, could be the shooter and appeared to have died as the result of a self-inflicted gunshot.

As reports first emerged about the shooting, employees posted about barricading themselves inside rooms as police and ambulances arrived at the scene.

“Heard shots and saw people running while at my desk. Now barricaded inside a room with coworkers,” Vadim Lavrusik, a YouTube employee, posted to Twitter.

YouTube employee, Michael Ho, told the Guardian he was on the phone with his wife in an open-floor-plan area when he saw people running. “At first I wasn’t sure if it was something they were doing for fun,” he said, before noticing looks of panic on people’s faces.

A spokesman for San Francisco General Hospital said that the hospital had received three patients, one in critical condition. The patients are a 32-year-old woman in serious condition, a 27-year-old woman in fair condition, and a 36-year-old man in critical condition. The nearby Stanford hospital is expecting four to five patients of unknown condition, hospital spokeswoman Lisa Kim said.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the Youtube shooting.
