Shooter's family warned police about Youtube grudge

Shooter's family warned police about Youtube grudge

In her online postings, Aghdam had complained that some of her videos, which showed her demonstrating some exercise techniques, were allegedly flagged as adults-only content which may have lost her ad revenue. The family was well aware that Aghdam was upset with Youtube, but when asked if she had a history of mental illness, the family said no.

Barberini said there is no indication to suggest that Aghdam had any personal relationship with any of the victims. Throughout our entire interaction with her, she was calm and cooperative. "I wish we could look into someone's soul". She exercised, promoted animal rights and explained the vegan diet, often in freaky productions with elaborate costumes or carrying a rabbit.

"They were just ideal neighbors", Rundell said. Spokeswoman Ginger Colbrun would not confirm the locations but reporters saw agents entering homes in the communities of Menifee, southeast of Los Angeles, and 4S Ranch, north of San Diego. On Thursday evening, customers streamed in and out carrying rifle cases, and an assortment of shotguns and rifles for sale were on display behind the counter.

The father of Nasim Najafi Aghdam informed police in the Silicon Valley hub of Mountain View that she had gone missing from her San Diego home, and may have travelled to the area because she was furious at YouTube's alleged censorship of her video channels. Nevertheless, the family said they tried to warn the police that Nasim was angry with YouTube for suppressing her videos.

People in Iran expressed pity and shock that Aghdam would shoot others in a country that allows more social media freedom.

Police have said they are planning to delve deeper into Aghdam's past in order to fully develop a possible motive for the attack.

Aghdam's family became anxious over the weekend after she stopped answering her phone.

Police in Mountain View, where YouTube parent Google is located, confirmed that they found her sleeping in her auto just after midnight Tuesday morning.

Allegations of bribery over the deal dogged the governments of both Zuma and one of his predecessors, Thabo Mbeki. What have I done? "For me he is innocent until a court finds otherwise", Durban resident Thembi Sibiya told me.

In a separate tweet, Mr Pichai said he and YouTube Chief Executive Susan Wojcicki were "focused on supporting our employees and the @YouTube community through this hard time together". She gave no reason but said she was its only member and the group had no assets.

The suspect, 39-year-old Nasim Aghdam of San Diego, was reported missing by her family in San Diego on March 31, San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said today on "Good Morning America". "'Under control.'" Police said they did find Nasim sleeping in her vehicle before the shooting. One spent magazine was found at the scene, along with the gun and the second loaded magazine, he said.

Aghdam was known for protesting against animal cruelty and supporting a vegan lifestyle, relatives said.

It was a 9mm Smith and Wesson that had a capacity of 10 rounds.

The YouTube shooting suspect was angry about the company's policies and had visited a gun range before the attack, police said.

The department maintains the family never indicated Aghdam may lash out violently or own firearms.

San Bruno police would not release the name of the gun range where Aghdam took target practice Tuesday, but Caldwell said the business reached out to authorities after seeing news reports of the shooting and recognizing the woman who had been there a short time earlier. One of the victims - a 36-year-old man - remains in serious condition, a spokesman for Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital said. The video platform has since responded, stating that it will increase the security across all of its offices worldwide to ensure employee safety.
