Shooting at Youtube California.

Police in Northern California say they are responding to an incident involving an "active shooter" at YouTube headquarters.

Gunshots were reported at the company's campus in San Bruno, south of San Francisco.

Ambulances are at the scene and authorities have warned the public to stay out of the area.

Google, which owns YouTube, has said it is investigating a possible "gunfire incident".

Unconfirmed reports from local media say the shooter is a woman.

Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital has said it is treating patients from the incident. No details were provided on their condition.

Some 1,700 people work at the YouTube HQ. Google said it was "coordinating with authorities" and would provide information as it becomes available.

Youtube has been cracking down on all their gun related content recently.

Four people injured, no dead that I've seen reported. Female shooter, apparently shot herself before she could be arrested.

A horrific story involving possible loss of life and you take that away from the headlines?



Me too :) I wondered how much he had to donate to get it named.

Sounding like this was a disgruntled Youtuber with an axe to grind.

Not enough cat videos probably. A strongly worded email would have done though.

She'd had her videos demonetized by the sound of it.

I'm sure she had a valid grievance but going to the office with a gun....?? Maybe here we'd turn up in a tractor full of manure and spray the building rather than shooting the entirely not at fault employees.

Yeah... my wife's been following the coverage in places with more detail (like the Daily Mail, which I'd rather not peruse), so she's party to more information than I am, and her opinion this morning was 'nutjob', rather than someone with a legitimate grievance.

At least no-one (so far, understand one person is in critical condition) has died, but it's another incident to add to the growing list of reasons why America must be such a terrifying place to live in right now. I can't even imagine trying to raise a young family with that kind of ever-present threat, particular within the school system.

Yeah. Poor thing had obvious mental health issues - look at her affect, it's painfully restricted. Her videos are relentlessly bizarre in every way possible.

Reading some FB reactions: cue my American right-wing nutjob comrades, talking about guns and calibers and NRA and 2nd Amendment on and on. Bunch of fucking twats and I'm so over it. Elon can't get me to Mars fast enough.
