Nasim Najafi Aghdam, 39, visited a San Diego-area gun range on Wednesday morning, prior to visiting the YouTube headquarters and injuring three employees before killing herself with a legally owned 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun.

"The San Bruno Police Department is investigating a motive for this shooting".

Officers also discovered Aghdam sleeping in her vehicle hours before the attack, failing to apprehend her as they thought she posed no risk, as previously reported byCrimeOnline.

Ismail Aghdam said that his daughter was angry at YouTube for not paying her for the content.

"The woman confirmed her identity to us and answered subsequent questions", police said, adding that "her family was notified that she had been located".

Law enforcement in Mountain View, California said officers encountered the woman responsible for opening fire at YouTube just hours before the fateful attack Tuesday.

Hossein Naderi, a 23-year-old art student in Tehran, questioned why Aghdam chose to "live in the US, though she didn't like it there", adding: "I wish I was there to use YouTube freely".

"We called the cops again and told them there is a reason she went all the way from San Diego to there so she might do something", he told the News.

San Bruno police confirm that one of the magazines was empty and that Aghdam loaded a second to fire more shots at YouTube employees before she turned the firearm on herself.

"It was a very normal conversation", Bosel said, with authorities emphasizing the family gave no indication Aghdam would turn violent.

San Diego sheriff's Lt. Karen Stubkjaer said Thursday that the father never told deputies that she was a danger to herself or others when he reported her missing.

"I didn't know she has a gun. We're always looking for opportunities to harden targets or making environments as safe as possible for folks that work there". The third shooting victim, a 36-year-old man, was upgraded from critical to serious condition.

Bringing the attack directly to the perpetrators of the chemical assault could be the one message they truly understand. Israel bombed the T4 military base back in February, after an Iranian drone crossed into Israeli airspace.

One of the witnesses told Fox News that he wished he was armed.

Two women wounded in the shooting were released Wednesday from a San Francisco hospital.

She was not able to step into the main YouTube building itself, as the company noted in a statement.

Those complaints included claims the company was not sharing enough revenue with people who create videos for the platform.

Aghdam had also complained about YouTube's alleged censorship in recent times.

"YouTube filtered my channels to keep them from getting views!" she wrote on her website, before it was taken down Wednesday afternoon. NBC also reported on an image folder on Aghdam's personal website, which showed what purported to be an email she received that "appeared to come from an account associated with YouTube's legal support team in response to a complaint she levied on June 16, 2017".

The gunfire started shortly before 1 the company's headquarters about 10 miles from San Francisco. "He tried to tell me his side of the story".

A YouTube product manager, Todd Sherman, described on Twitter hearing people running, first thinking it was an quake before he was told that a person had a gun.

"First thought was natural disaster", Sherman said in a series of tweets. He said the public can access the courtyard where he saw the shooter without any security check during working hours.

His tweets continued: "I looked down and saw blood drips on the floor and stairs".

He fled downstairs, peeking around him to ensure the shooter was not around before dashing out of the building. "They age restricted my ab workout video". It was later purchased by Google.

ABC News, citing unnamed law enforcement sources, said the suspect was 35 to 40 years old, and lived in Southern California.
