At least three people were wounded and a woman who was the suspected shooter was found dead on the campus of the YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California, according to Police Chief Ed Barberini.
Police descended on the corporate office campus Tuesday afternoon on reports of an active shooter at the building.
Images of the scene and accounts of the terrifying moments experienced by those inside immediately began spreading online and across major cable TV outlets.
The incident was attributed to a domestic quarrel, but the woman who shot 3 people and took her own life was a disgruntled YouTube user who claimed the company censored and discriminated against her.
Nasim Aghdam, identified as the shooter, was a 38-year-old avid YouTube user who posted clips denouncing the social platform.
As gun violence remains a comparatively rare event, in several sensationalized reports media pundits seem to be preparing the public to accept measures more likely to turn America into a police state.
