Little sympathy in Iran for YouTube shooter's frustration

Police confirm active shooter at YouTube headquarters (updated)

Aghdam's brother said he told authorities that "she went all the way from San Diego, so she might do something", once he realized Mountain View is where YouTube is headquartered.

"There is no equal growth opportunity on YouTube or any other video sharing site, your channel will grow if they want to!".

On Jan. 28, Aghdam recorded a video of herself lamenting her perceived "discrimination" by YouTube, particularly railing on how YouTube determined her ab workout video was too racy and, therefore, filtered it.

Investigators were looking into whether Aghdam may have been targeting a boyfriend, a law enforcement source said Tuesday afternoon, according to the news outlet.

Just hours before she shot and wounded three people at the YouTube headquarters on Tuesday, police in Mountain View spotted Nasim Aghdam sleeping in her auto.

"Our family is in absolute shock and can't makes sense of what happened". "Although no words can describe our deep pain for this tragedy, our family would like to express their utmost regret, sorrow for what has happened to innocent victims". "Our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families", her family said in a statement released Wednesday. She was earlier apprehended by Mountain View police a few miles from Alphabet's office complex, where the YouTube headquarters was located. The 39-year-old Iranian-born woman of Persian descent, who lived in Southern California, was reported missing by her family on March 31 in San Diego County.

"So they didn't do anything, and she got killed", her brother said.

When Aghdam's brother learned her vehicle was found in Mountain View, he anxious she "might do something". He talked to the police officer who had originally called him and he told that officer of his family's concerns.

KGO-TV reported the shooter was believed to be a white woman wearing a headscarf and a dark top, but police did not immediately confirm it. Witnesses told KTVU that the suspect shot her boyfriend before killing herself. "And she had a problem with YouTube", Aghdam's brother told CNN affiliate KGTV.

Police said Aghdam had legally purchased a 9 millimeter Smith and Wesson semi-automatic handgun. She then turned the gun on herself. On Feb. 20, YouTube enacted a new advertising policy that demonetized channels with less than 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time. "I did the best I can to avoid it but the cop didn't do their job", her brother insisted in an interview with this news agency.

YouTube employees Alina Zhu, 25, left, and Doreen Tran, 25, right, hug as they walk down a parking lot two blocks away from where a shooting at the YouTube headquarters occurred in San Bruno, Calif., April 3, 2018.

The sequence of Aghdam's activities emerged Wednesday as police continued gathering information about the attacker and her motives. "At the conclusion of our interaction with her, she in no way met any reason for us to speak with her further or possibly detain her". The morning before going to the YouTube offices, Aghdam went to a local gun range.

Two women, aged 32 and 27, who were seriously wounded in the attack were discharged from hospital this evening. She had established a short-lived nonprofit charity called PeaceThunder and YouTube channels in English, Farsi and Turkish to promote her vegan views. In one post she says: "Internet crackdown and filtering is increasing in the West". Range owner Jason Remolona refused to answer questions about whether Aghdam had been at the range, referring questions to San Bruno police.

"All my youtube channels got filtered by youtube so my videos hardly get views and it is called 'merely relegation.' This is also happening to many other channels on youtube", she wrote.
