“Producers from YouTube tweeted that they believed there was an active shooter on the company’s campus. Some said they heard so many people running that they believed an earthquake had struck. Others described a gruesome scene.”

“I looked down and saw blood drips on the floor and stairs,” Todd Sherman, a YouTube producer, wrote on Twitter. “Peaked [sic] around for threats and then we headed downstairs and out the front.”

“We see lots cops and firefighters,” Tam said. “We can’t see any people. It’s just a lot of trucks along the street at the moment.”

“Tam said three YouTube employees came into the restaurant appearing visibly shaken.”

“”They came in from a back door,” she said. “They sat down at a table. They were in a daze. One guy, there was a little blood on his head.”

“One employee had a partial fragment of a bullet in her shoe, Tam said.”

    • Dear Tony Burgess,

      The story is still a bit confusing. I was expecting a lovers’ triangle or a disgruntled employee seeking revenge. Instead it looks like she simply hated the company.

      This is another instance where the Dad called the police and told them that his daughter was on the way to YouTube. Someone dropped the ball.

      Hugs, Gronda

  1. Gronda, another sad day. Today, it was reported the attack may have been due to perceived lack of promotion of her videos. We must help folks deal with disappointment through civil discourse not violence. I am not saying that is the reason or if that is the only reason, as we don’t know yet. But, I do feel deteriorating civil discourse is an issue we must improve upon. Keith

    • Dear Keith,

      You are so right.

      It looks like better customer service would have helped as well. Helping young people deal with life’s hiccups helps as well. I continuously work on this issue with my daughter who has Asperger’s syndrome. If something goes wrong like her car doesn’t start, I help her by advising her to take a deep breath and then to call the car towing company that also helps with recharging a car battery. This is what most of us would do without thinking but she has to overcome her moments of panic.

      She has a lot of friends who help her with this as well. I always wonder about the soul who doesn’t have this support system.

      Hugs,Gronda

  2. Here’s the latest update on the Youtube shooter:

    The women is 39 years old, she’s not a youngster, and a bit unhinged.
    “As far as I know, this is the first example of someone being censored by YouTube, then actively shooting YouTube employees as a form of revenge.”
