BREAKING: Police respond to active shooter at YouTube’s headquarters campus
Police have responded to reports of multiple gunshots at YouTube‘s San Bruno, California headquarters. SWAT Teams and helicopters have descended upon what’s being called an “active shooter incident” reported at the building, and while San Bruno authorities have yet to comment directly on the situation as of this writing, multiple employees inside the building have been corroborating reports via social media. Aerial footage shows employees filing out of the building with their hands above their heads, though on-the-ground reports from YouTube employees paint a more grusome picture.
I looked down and saw blood drips on the floor and stairs. Peaked around for threats and then we headed downstairs and out the front.
