A woman opened fire at Google’s YouTube headquarter at the Suburban Northern California campus by wounding three women before shooting herself to death. The woman has carried out the attack with 9mm handgun because of the domestic issues. The incident took place when the employees are out for the lunch.
The woman is identified as Nasim Najafi Afghdam who is 39 years old and lived in San Diego area. She claimed tat the company had discriminated and filtered her content.
Police chief Ed Barberni Of San Bruno City said, “We did locate a victim with what we believe to a self-inflicted gunshot wound. It’s a female, but the investigation is still ongoing before we can put all the pieces together”.
The three-injured person were immediately taken to the local hospital among which two females of 32-year old and 36-years-old is in serious situation while a 27-year-old female is in fair condition.
However, Google’s (parent company of the YouTube) CEO Sundar Pichai gets emotional with the incident and said that he has no words to describe the tragedy that occurred at the headquarter. He showed his full support with the employees and the YouTube Community at this difficult time.
Sundar Pichai said, “It’s with great sadness that I tell you- based on the latest information- four people were injured in this horrific act of violence. We’re doing everything we can support them and their families at this time”.
He further added, “I am grateful to everyone inside and outside the company for the outpouring of support and best wishes. I am especially thankful to the first responders and our own security team who acted so quickly to keep people safe”.
