This week, a woman entered YouTube’s headquarters in San Bruno, CA and started shooting at random. Three people were injured and thankfully no one was killed. One victim remains in serious condition at a nearby hospital.
The shooter was a social media personality who gave exercise tutorials on YouTube and on her personal website. She was allegedly upset about some changes in YouTube’s policies that made it more difficult for smaller channels to earn ad revenue.
A handgun was registered in the name of the shooter and she reportedly had visited a gun range just hours before the shooting. The attacker committed suicide after opening fire in a courtyard at YouTube HQ.
