Woman Opens Fire at YouTube Headquarters







A woman opened fire with a handgun Tuesday in a courtyard at YouTube headquarters, wounding three people before fatally shooting herself in what is being investigated as a domestic dispute.


Authorities gave few details about the shooter and victims, except that the gunfire was being investigated as a domestic dispute.

Officers discovered a victim near a front door and then found the shooter several minutes later with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Two additional gunshot victims were found at an adjacent business minutes later.

YouTube’s headquarters has more than a thousand engineers and other employees in several buildings. Originally built in the late 1990s for the clothing retailer Gap, the campus south of San Francisco is known for its sloped green roof of native grasses.

The White House said President Donald Trump was briefed on the shooting and that officials were monitoring developments.
