Hospitalized YouTube shooting victim upgraded to fair condition

Hospitalized YouTube shooting victim upgraded to fair condition

The San Jose Mercury News quoted Aghdam's father, Ismail Aghdam, as saying he told police that his daughter might go to YouTube's headquarters because she hated the company but Mountain view police disputed that account.

While the total number of shots she fired is not determined, San Bruno Police Commander Geoff Caldwell said Aghdam fired "several" and blasted through at least one magazine and reloaded with a second before firing again.

"She was insane and just wanted to make herself famous", she said.

Aghdam was prolific at producing videos and posting them online.

Federal and state investigators also executed search warrants at two homes associated with the family, collecting evidence.

Aghdam entered the YouTube parking garage and walked to an open-air plaza, where she opened fire.

The brother has revealed that in advance of the attack, he and his family warned the police about her unstable status.

Online the shooter, Nasim Najafi Aghdam, had already expressed her anger at YouTube. He said he wasn't sure if his store - a long nondescript beige brick building next to an auto dealership, with palm trees surrounding the front entrance - had been contacted by law enforcement but said they would cooperate in any investigation. After the shooting, YouTube took down her videos, and some of her other social media sites have been removed, which typically happens after most of these shootings to shooters' profiles.

How did the girl who grew up in Iran worshipping every insect become the woman who indiscriminately shot into a crowd of terrified YouTube employees who had been enjoying lunch on a sunny Silicon Valley patio? 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. At her father's house, one relative said Aghdam came from Iran as a refugee at 18, about 21 years ago. (Wait, what?) One contingent even postulated that the name "Nasim" is traditionally male, so Aghdam must have been a transgender woman - after all, another added, cis "women would never do such a thing". A woman named Leila who identified herself as an aunt said Nasim Aghdam was a "really good person" and had no history of mental illness.

Ismail Aghdam reported his daughter missing on Monday. She offered few specifics about what she believed had been suppressed, other than to complain that her workout videos had been flagged as adults-only content.

After receiving multiple 911 calls reporting gunfire, officers and federal agents swarmed the company's suburban campus sandwiched between two interstates in the San Francisco Bay-area city of San Bruno.

Of three people wounded by gunshots, a 36-year-old man initially classified as critically injured remained hospitalized Friday in fair condition.

Her mother broke down when it was brought up that the day of the interview, Thursday, would have been her 39th birthday. "He did not seem concerned that she was in the area, and wanted to simply let us know that may have been a reason for her move up here", police stated. Two were released from hospital care but one is still in serious condition.

Her father told police she was upset because she felt YouTube was making it harder for her to earn money via advertising on her videos.
