Brother Of YouTube Shooter Thinks Police Missed A Chance To Prevent Attack

Ismael LynchApr 07, 2018

Police who found Aghdam sleeping in her auto early Tuesday in the city of Mountain View about 25 miles (40 kilometers) from YouTube headquarters said she was calm and said nothing about being angry with YouTube or having any plans to harm others or herself.

He said his sister had been obsessed with YouTube and that it came up in almost every conversation with her. She then killed herself. "Aghdam's father stated that she may have been in the area because of this".

Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on Wednesday searched two homes where Nasim Aghdam had lived - one in Menifee, which is southeast of Los Angeles, and another in 4S Ranch, north of San Diego.

Things were not back to normal at Youtube's San Bruno headquarters, but many employees returned to the office to retrieve their personal belongings and to pick up their cars from the same garage where Nasim Aghdam gained access to the campus. She did not give her last name.

"Our family is in absolute shock and can't makes sense of what happened", they said in a statement to Mercury News.

"Although no words can describe our deep pain for this tragedy, our family would like to express their utmost regret, sorrow for what has happened to innocent victims", the statement said.

A 36-year-old man who has been in the hospital since Tuesday's shooting at YouTube's headquarters in San Bruno is now in fair condition, a Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital spokesman said today.

Authorities are still trying to determine whether she got past security measures to enter YouTube headquarters, he said. The other two gunshot victims, a 32-year-old woman and a 27-year-old woman, have been released.

The day before the attack, the shooter's father, Ismail Aghdam, said he warned police that his daughter was upset with how YouTube handled her videos and might be planning to go to its offices. Already seething over YouTube's crackdown on videos she routinely posted, Aghdam took the gun home with her on January 16, the same day the internet giant announced a bigger revenue crackdown on content creators like her. Police say Aghdam shot three employees who were eating lunch on the patio before turning the gun on herself.

Officers in Mountain View, California, matched Nasim Aghdam's license plates to a missing person report after they found her sleeping in a parking lot near a Walmart at 1:40 a.m. on the day of the shooting.

Mendoza said he didn't know if Aghdam purchased ammunition or accessories during her transaction and he said to his knowledge she had never practiced at one of the store's 13 shooting lanes. "She did not want to be in the San Diego area and she was up here to find a job", said Mountain View Police Chief Max Bosel.

They let her go, saying there was no indication she needed to be detained.

Caldwell said she had legally bought the 9mm handgun from in San Diego in January, and it was registered in her name. Police visited the range Wednesday.
