  • Active shooter at YouTube HQ in San Bruno

San Bruno Police first tweeted "Police activity at 901 Cherry Ave, please stay out of the area", just after 4:00 p.m. (1:00 p.m. PDT) on Tuesday.

ABC reports that the shooter may be in custody or possibly dead, but still no confirmation from local law enforcement. Investigators say that she likely died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Google says its security team has been working with authorities to evacuate buildings at YouTube headquarters after a shooting. Northern California's Stanford Hospital said it has received four to five patients, but a hospital spokeswoman did not have information on their conditions or their wounds.

"She had a leg injury, a gunshot wound, so I put a tourniquet on her to try to help her", the witness told Sky News.

During a press conference, police said they arrived to find a chaotic scene with numerous panicked employees fleeing the area.

Three victims from the shooting have been confirmed, with one in critical condition and another in serious condition, according to CBS News.

YouTube employees began tweeting there was a shooter on their campus and they were taking shelter around 1 p.m.


Police in the city south of San Francisco warned people in a Twitter message to stay away from the address where YouTube, owned by Alphabet Inc's Google, is based.

"We headed towards the exit and then saw more people and someone said that there was a person with a gun", Sherman tweeted.

Images posted on social media show YouTube employees being evacuated from the building with their hands above their heads.

Will Hudson said his friend who works for YouTube texted him about the shooter.

He could not confirm initial reports that a second shooter was involved.

The White House said President Donald Trump had been briefed and that his administration was monitoring the ongoing situation in San Bruno. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said its San Francisco Field Division is also responding.
