*UPDATE: April 4, 2018 at 8:30am (ET)
Early reports of this being a woman angry at a boyfriend were incorrect.
The woman has been identified as a Persian (ie. Iranian) woman who supported PETA, was an animal rights activist and was a vegan bodybuilder that was angry with YouTube for demonetizing her exercise videos.
Her father had contacted the police when she went missing a couple of days ago. He told them that she was angry with YouTube and because they had ‘stopped everything and now she has no income’.
She was found near the Google headquarters sleeping in her car on Monday night.
The woman behind a mass shooting at YouTube’s headquarters has been identified as an animal rights activist who claimed the company censored her channel.
Nasim Aghdam, who also used the name Nasime Sabz on her Facebook, Instagram and personal website, injured three people before turning the gun on herself…
Funny how the initial reports were that it was more of a relationship issue.
…On her now defunct YouTube page, the 39-year-old described herself as “the Persian Azeri female vegan athlete and animal rights activist promoting VEGANISM, the healthy and humane way of living.”

She was popular within the Persian and Turkish communities.
“Nasim produced and launched the first vegan Persian TV commercial and first Persian animal rights music video (Do You Dare) in 2010, International persian satellite television, Andisheh TV.
“Nasim is the well known and most famous animal rights activist in persian / turkish community.”
Her ab workout video was restricted and she complained about censorship. Here is a video of her complaining about it:

Perhaps it was because there were complaints about her video being ‘inappropriate’ from the community that she was popular with. After all, they’re the ones that are keen to have women covered from head to toe, amirite?
Early reports were that the shooter may have targeted a boyfriend but it is now understood Aghdam was not known by anyone at YouTube.
CBSNews said Aghdam’s father Ismail told them his daughter had been missing for several days and he’d told police she was “angry” at YouTube.
He said police contacted him to say Aghdam had been found in Mountain View, where Google has its headquarters, on Monday night.
Mr Aghdam said YouTube “stopped everything and now she has no income.”

She chose her victims randomly.
That angry-girlfriend-shoots-boyfriend narrative unraveled rather quickly, didn’t it? The Media (D) was all over this yesterday, but it’s now been dropped like a hot potato.
Watch the Fox News report:

News footage showed people leaving in a line with their hands in the air as police checked for weapons.
The situation is now over, and initial reports are that the shooter was a woman that opened fire on her boyfriend and injured several others in the process.
It is believed that the shooter has taken her own life, but that has not yet been confirmed.
A woman who police believe opened fire at YouTube headquarters in Northern California has been found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said.
Police in the city of San Bruno said there was an active shooter on the tech company’s campus about 1 p.m. local time. Multiple 911 calls reported gunfire, and police and fire officials responded, City Manager Connie Jackson said.
There are multiple victims. San Francisco General Hospital said it has three patients from the shooting, including one in critical condition. Northern California’s Stanford Hospital said it has received four to five patients, but a hospital spokeswoman did not have information on their conditions or their wounds.

Once updated, President Trump responded swiftly via Twitter:
Was just briefed on the shooting at YouTube’s HQ in San Bruno, California. Our thoughts and prayers are with everybody involved. Thank you to our phenomenal Law Enforcement Officers and First Responders that are currently on the scene.

Of course, people on Twitter are being gross.
Just so you all know, an armed teacher wouldn't have stopped the shooter at YouTube HQ

Raheem Kassam of Breitbart UK points out Mike Stuchbery’s vile tweet:
I'm going to politicize the fuck out of it, and so should you.
The NRA is a terrorist organization. https://t.co/UsoQBIxWpf

Well, just because the leftists won’t offer thoughts and prayers, it doesn’t mean that we won’t.
Also, please note that Brianna Wu wants to start her own crap version of the NRA.
That’s because she has no idea what the NRA is all about. She probably thinks it’s all about selling guns and profiting from the ‘blood of the children’ or something.
You know how crazy leftists are.
But hey, at least one guy got it wrong.
