Authorities in Northern California 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.
Police started investigating the active shooter situation at YouTube’s headquarters in San Bruno, California, which is just outside San Francisco, Tuesday afternoon.
Authorities received numerous 9-1-1 calls from people who say they heard shots being fired in the area.
Law enforcement officers searched the campus for a little over an hour looking for the shooter.
TV helicopter video shows officers patting down people grouped outside a building and police vehicles surrounding the area.
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.
