Police: YouTube shooting victims weren't targeted


Updated April 04, 2018 11:21 AM EDT

Brother to Nasim Najafi Aghdam, the suspected shooter behind Tuesday's shooting at YouTube's headquarters said he called the police to warn that she might do something, according to CNN.

In the report, her brother states that his sister stopped answering her phone over the weekend and he grew concerned. They were unsure if the message was relayed to police in San Francisco, CNN added.

SAN BRUNO, Calif. (AP) — Police say the three people who were shot at YouTube's headquarters in California were not specifically targeted.

San Bruno police said in a statement that 39-year-old Nasim Najafi Aghdam did not know the victims when she opened fire Tuesday afternoon before she killed herself.

A law enforcement official said investigators believe Aghdam used the name Nasime Sabz online and had a long-running dispute with YouTube.

A website in that name decried YouTube's policies and said that YouTube was trying to "suppress" content creators.

Her father, Ismail Aghdam, told the Bay Area News Group that she "hated" the company.

Earlier Tuesday, law enforcement said the shooting was being investigated as a domestic dispute but did not elaborate. It was not immediately clear why police later said the people shot were not targeted.
