Officers at the scene have described the shooter as a female, who is now deceased. They stated that the shooter suffered what looks to be a fatal self-inflicted gunshot wound. It is unclear at the moment the full extent of injuries, but at the moment there are 4 confirmed gunshot victims being treated at a local hospital. While the building is fully evacuated, the building is still being searched thoroughly for a possibility of a second shooter. It looks at the moment that, although the area is still being searched and is blocked off, it is no longer being treated as an active shooter situation. The officers have stated that the investigation will be ongoing. More details about the victims and the shooter are to be released at a later date.
There are reports that have been posting online claiming an active shooter is present at YouTube’s headquarters. This has been corroborated by the San Bruno’s official police departments’ twitter, local reporters and some YouTube employees themselves.
It appears there is an evacuation currently underway, and S.W.A.T. presence has been spotted around the area searching for the active shooter who has yet to be found. A YouTube employee claims to have seen blood in the stairwell while being escorted out of the building by authorities, but police have yet to confirm any injuries or casualties.

I got evacuated outside with my hands up. I’m with other people. I don’t think the shooter’s been found that I know of. I saw blood drops on the stairs I walk up everusay. I’m shaking. This is surreal. I hope my colleagues are okay.

YouTube has been under scrutiny for its policies many times, as well as one of their recent updates to their policy for what can and cannot be featured in videos when it comes to firearms.
