Just hours after a 39-year old YouTube user opened fire at the video-sharing company’s California Campus, new details are emerging about the suspected shooter’s final hours; with reports now showing she visited a gun range prior to the attack.
Despite multiple videos ranting against YouTube for “filtering” her content, Nasim Aghdam was still able to launch her devastating attack on the company’s headquarters; evading police just hours before her rampage.
The surprising details raise new questions whether local law enforcement missed multiple opportunities to prevent the deadly attack. According to multiple sources, police found the suspected shooter sleeping in her car just hours before the assault.
“At no point during our roughly 20 minute interaction with her did she mention anything about YouTube, if she was upset with them, or that she had planned to harm herself or others,” said the Mountain View Police Department. “Throughout our entire interaction with her, she was calm and cooperative.”
The revelation comes as the suspect’s brother confirmed he called law enforcement to warn them of his sister’s dangerous situation, saying she may “do something” at YouTube.
“She went all the way from San Diego, so she might do something,” he told KGTV.
