Update III: President Trump has been briefed on today’s shooting.
Update II: San Bruno police in their first briefing since the shooting said they arrived at the scene at 12:48 pm PT two minutes after receiving a barrage of calls about gunshots at YouTube HQ, said San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barbarini.
Upon arrival, police encountered employees fleeing from the building and encountered one victim with a gunshot wound toward the entrance of the building. Later, while searching the premises, officers discovered a second victim with a gunshot wound that appeared to be self inflicted.
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.
