A woman shot and killed herself after wounding her boyfriend and two other people with a handgun at YouTube headquarters today, April 3rd.

The gunfire took place while the employees were eating lunch in an open courtyard. The police were called at 12:46 PM, and three officers who arrived at the scene within two minutes were met by fleeing employees. The shooting appeared to have been fueled by a domestic dispute and that the suspect was targeting her boyfriend.

How did she even get within a mile of that building with a gun? You'd think they would have such high security it would impossible for this to happen.

Here is some more news about it :

Police questioned Nasim Aghdam in her car just hours before she opened fire on YouTube headquarters on Tuesday. Over the course of a 20-minute interview, Aghdam calmly explained to officers that she was sleeping in the vehicle because she was having family problems and had left home.

She never brought up YouTube or her rage against the company. Nor did she give any indication she was a threat to herself.

So the police officers had some concern if they were talking to her for 20 minutes. Not laying blame on them at all though.

Yeah, there was no way for the officers to know this was going to happen. Although people still have tried to lay blame in their direction ...
