A female suspect has just carried out a shooting at the Youtube Headquarters in San Bruno, California. Shootings are not rare in America but a woman carrying out the attack definitely is.
The female suspect is dead. It is being reported that she killed herself shortly after starting the attack and shooting the four victims.
All of the victims have been rushed to the hospital and all of them were injured by gunshot wounds. There have been no confirmed deaths so far but that can change at any time.
Active shooter at YouTube HQ. Heard shots and saw people running while at my desk. Now barricaded inside a room with coworkers.

It is being suspected that this was caused by a workplace dispute and is not a terrorist attack
There was an altercation with the woman who carried out the shooting and some workers for Youtube. It seems she was also an employee or worked close by. The Police are still holding back some information but workers who were inside the building are confirming this via Twitter and other social media platforms.
We were sitting in a meeting and then we heard people running because it was rumbling the floor. First thought was earthquake. https://t.co/gmolQmRXm1

Workers used Twitter to express their fear and anxiety as they did not how many shooters were present and they could not get any information from the outside.
I am behind another building with colleagues. There are helicopters. There are lots of police nearby. I don’t know if the shooter has been found. If you hear they’ve been found, tell me. I’m safe for now, but don’t feel safe until they’ve been found.
