A 39 year old woman entered YouTube HQ in California at lunchtime yesterday and began shooting people.
She shot at three people and then shot herself.
A few YouTube employee's tweeted as the shooting was happening.
Active shooter at YouTube HQ. Heard shots and saw people running while at my desk. Now barricaded inside a room with coworkers.

We were sitting in a meeting and then we heard people running because it was rumbling the floor. First thought was earthquake. https://t.co/gmolQmRXm1

The FBI are currently investigating a motive behind the shooting. It was found that the female shooter had previously expressed anger towards YouTube and had railed against the company on her own website.
The wounded are currently being treated in hospital.
