"We know that she was upset with YouTube", Barberini said, telling reporters that there were no clear targets in her attack.

The woman who shot three people at YouTube's headquarters was prolific at producing videos and posting them online, many of them weird, such as a clip in which she removes a revealing purple dress to expose fake, strapped-on breasts with the message "Don't Trust Your Eyes". During the shooting, she swapped out a magazine and shot from the second magazine when she killed herself. "'Under control.'" Police said they did find Nasim sleeping in her vehicle before the shooting. YouTube's parent company, Google, referred CNN to an earlier statement about the shooting when contacted about the website.

"At no point during our roughly 20 minute interaction with her did she mention anything about YouTube, if she was upset with them, or that she had planned to harm herself or others. she was calm and cooperative", Mountain View police said.

"She was a weirdo", said one neighbor, who would only give her name as Lucy.

The shooter's family later distributed a statement outside the home saying it was "in absolute shock and can't make sense of what has happened".

The demonetization from Youtube has come from recent policy changes, in which, Youtube now require 4000 hours of watched video time, within a 12 month period, and at least 1000 subscribers to pay a creator for content.

Two women, aged 32 and 27, who were seriously wounded in the attack were discharged from hospital this evening.

The father of 38-year-old Nasim Aghdam told cops that she might be going to YouTube's sprawling campus near San Francisco because she "hated" the company, The Press-Enterprise reported.

Investigators will likely scrutinize Aghdam's movements during the almost nine-hour drive from her family's home near San Diego to the YouTube campus, examine the freakish videos she posted online and look for any messages she may have sent to company officials.

Her video posts included segments about veganism, animal cruelty and exercise, along with glamor shots of herself.

A man who witnessed the shooting at YouTube headquarters in California on Tuesday said that he wished he had a gun on him.

When he found out she was in Mountain View, he Googled the city and found out it was near YouTube's headquarters. Mountain View police later found her around 2 am. Range owner Jason Remolona refused to answer questions about whether Aghdam had been at the range, referring questions to San Bruno police.

An unnamed family member expressed concern that Aghdam was allowed to purchase a firearm without a psychiatric exam. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the case.

"I'm being discriminated and filtered on YouTube and I'm not the only one", Aghdam says as she stands in front of a background of green and white stars.

"There is no equal growth opportunity on YouTube or any other video sharing site, your channel will grow if they want to!". The information is so readily available because Aghdam was a creative contributor on Youtube's video platform.

The company said Wednesday that it will increase security at its headquarters and offices around the world.

Employees have been encouraged to take time off work, to work from home, and YouTube is making sure wellness services are readily available to its workers.
