Law enforcement has identified the shooter who opened fire at YouTube headquarters as Nasim Aghdam. Many news outlets report that Aghdam took her own life after shooting three people. The investigation is still in the early stages as there are conflicting reports about Nasim Aghdam's motive. One of the main reports state that Aghdam was disgruntled over the demonetizing and shutting down of a number of her YouTube channels.
Aghdam reportedly wrote on her website prior to the shooting:
"Be aware! Dictatorship exists in all countries but with different tactics! They only care for personal and short-term profits and do anything to reach their goals even by fooling simple-minded people, hiding the truth, manipulating science and everything, putting public mental and physical health at risk, abusing non-human animals, polluting the environment, destroying family values, promoting materialism and sexual degeneration in the name of freedom and turning people into programmed robots!"
