YouTube shooter was calm in interview before attack

Confident A fan of morning workouts Amanda believes that when you stop comparing yourself to others you start to feel confident and'proud of who you are

A woman suspected of shooting three people at YouTube headquarters before killing herself was furious with the company because it had stopped paying her for videos she posted on the platform, her father said Tuesday, April 3, 2018. "I did the best I can to avoid it but the cops didn't do their job". He believed she was headed to the YouTube complex and he told police the family was concerned "she might do something". He says: "I wish I was there to use YouTube freely". She exercised, promoted animal rights and explained the vegan diet, often in freaky productions with elaborate costumes or carrying a rabbit.

YouTubers can be paid for ads accompanying their videos, but the company "de-monetizes" some channels for various reasons, which means ads are not run with them.

It's a question that continued to trouble her family Wednesday and sent law enforcement agents to her parents' tract home in a newer master-planned community in a growing town south of Riverside and the second-floor apartment she shared with her grandmother in San Diego.

Manny Mendoza, rangemaster at The Gun Range in San Diego, California, confirmed to Mercury News that Nasim Najafi Aghdam legally purchased the 9mm Smith & Wesson pistol from his store on January 2. At least three people were injured and the suspected shooter was found dead.

Police who found Aghdam sleeping in her vehicle early Tuesday in the city of Mountain View about 25 miles (40 kilometers) from YouTube headquarters said she was calm and said nothing about being angry with YouTube or having any plans to harm others or herself.

The family has since released an official statement acknowledging that attack, while also extending their sincerest sympathies to the victims who were hurt because of Aghdam.

The family later distributed a statement saying they were "in absolute shock and can't make sense of what has happened". "Although no words can describe our deep pain for this tragedy, our family would like to express their utmost regret for what happened to innocent victims".

It's still unclear why she turned the gun on herself and whether she could have continued firing. Next to another video, which also had been blocked Wednesday, she wrote: "This video got age restricted after new close-minded employees, got control of my farsi youtube channel previous year 2016 and began filtering my videos to reduce views & suppress & discaurage (sic) me from making videos!" "How [could] she shoot the people?" her father, Ismail Aghdam, told ABC News.

The San Bruno Police Department said on Wednesday that a semiautomatic handgun registered to Aghdam was recovered at the scene.

She had more than 5,000 subscribers on her most popular YouTube channel, had multiple channels as well as an Instagram page.

"She would yell from the balcony and say we were nasty", Sanford-Salar said.

Police then called her family to report that she had been found.

Rather, the shooting seemed motivated by her anger at YouTube's "policies and practices", he said. On Monday, he called police to report his daughter missing after she didn't answer the phone for two days and warned officers that she might go to YouTube, he said. She had established a short-lived nonprofit charity called PeaceThunder and YouTube channels in English, Farsi and Turkish to promote her vegan views.

YouTube was founded in February 2005 and quickly became a major site for online videos. On Thursday, the remaining patient's condition was upgraded from serious to fair condition, according to Brent Andrews, a spokesman for Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.
