The identity of the mysterious YouTube shooter has been revealed tonight.
She has been identified as Nasim Aghdam, two law enforcement sources told CNN.
The 38-year-old woman who was angry at YouTube and believed the company was discriminating against her videos, causing her to lose money and views, shot up the YouTube offices injuring 3 people on April 3rd, 2018.
Nasim Aghdam, who was born in Iran and lived in southern California, was active on YouTube and often ranted about the company in videos on her channels, on Instagram, and on her own website. It is unknown if this was a potential motive in Tuesday’s shooting, but police have not confirmed that. Police confirmed her identity Tuesday night.
Aghdam identified as Persian and often posted videos and other posts in English, Farsi and Turkish, the official language of Iran. She had various online aliases including Nasim(e) Sabz and Nasim VeganBreeze. Original reports listed Aghdam as being 39, but public records indicate that she was 38 and would have turned 39 on April 5, two days after the shooting.
