Shots fired at YouTube offices in California, casualties reported

Vadim Lavrusik

The headquarters in San Bruno, California, have been placed on lockdown after police swarmed the area following reports of shots being fired.

"We did locate a victim with what we believe to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound", Barberini said. Vadim Lavrusik said he barricaded himself and others inside a room before they were able to escape safely. Several minutes later, they found the female shooter.

Google, which owns YouTube, said in a tweet it is coordinating with authorities and working to evacuate employees.

He would not confirm whether the three had been shot, but said the surgeon treating them is "very experienced" with traumatic injuries, like gunshot wounds.

The San Bruno Police tweeted at 1pm local time advising people to avoid the area, reports KRON4.

Media footage of the scene showed massive groups of people being escorted out of the corporate headquarters amid a heavy police presence.

Police in Northern California say they're responding to an active shooter at YouTube headquarters.




The White House said President Trump was briefed about the ongoing incident.

"It was very chaotic as you can imagine", San Bruno Police Department Chief Ed Barberini told reporters during a press conference at the scene.

A spokesperson Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital told NBC News that they have received some wounded victims from YouTube's campus.

"My stomach sinks with yet another active shooter alert", the Democrat tweeted. "The fire alarm went off so we started to evacuate and then people (started) running saying there was a shooter".

He couldn't provide details on any possible weapons used or any new information on the shooter.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also said it responded to the shooting at YouTube's suburban campus.
