4 wounded and the shooter dead of a self-inflicted wound.

Ironbite-praying it's not a Muslim woman cause of the implications that'll have.

Ha. A few days ago, I saw a comment saying that with all Youtube's demonetisation of videos and dwindling payouts, it's only a matter of time before someone shoots up Youtube HQ. At the time, I thought "nah, that's just stupid". Well, I guess you called it, random Youtube commenter. I tip my non-existent hat to you.

Authorities think this might've been a domestic dispute, according to this article.

Lots of misinformation on the net about this. Mainly on purpose from sources like Infowars and 4Chan... https://www.mediamatters.org/research/2018/04/03/here-are-hoaxes-and-misinformation-spreading-about-active-shooter-youtube-headquarters/219839
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Seems she was into some kind of vegan thing, also bodybuilding and fashion.

Kind of person who'd be a harmless nutter in any country but the one that allows nutters to get their 2nd amendment harm on as an inalienable right.

Also, FFS.

Nothing says "ethics in game journalism" like making fake news about the people you hate.

She apparently had an anti-YouTube manifesto, according to this report. So it looks like that YouTube commenter Art mentioned may have been right.

It is correct. She had a Vegan youtube channel that was getting videos demonetized even though the videos contained nothing that was against the rules.

Youtube was, as often, being a dick but that's still not an acceptable reason to go shoot people.

two of the victims were released and the 3rd (and most seriously hurt) is in a more stable condition now.

Does anyone take Donald Trump seriously, anymore?
