Shooting At YouTube HQ In California: Suspect Dead And Injuries Reported | NBC News


IT IS TO BE ALIVE AND IN THE FIGHT FOR JUSTIN AND LASTLY THE BELIEF THAT THE COUNTRY WILL BE OKAY. THAT IT WILL GET TO THE PLACE THAT HE NEEDS TO BE. AND WE HAVE MISSING FROM OUR POLITICS TODAY IS THAT SENSE OF OPTIMISM AND HOPE. AND IT IS A GREAT SPEECH TO WATCH TONIGHT.>>AND SOMETHING TO PUT THIS MOMENT INTO ITS APPROPRIATE CONTEXT, TO PUT THIS MOMENT INTO ITS APPROPRIATE ANCHOR, I’M GOING TO HAND THINGS OVER TO BRIAN WILLIAMS. BUT I FIRST WANT TO THANK KARA AND TOM AND STEVE, CHARLIE, AND SO WE’LL STAY ON THE STORY AND PLEASE STAY WITH US.>>>NICOLLE WALLACE, THANKS. FOR ALL THE FOLKS TUNING IN, WE MUST EXPLAIN THAT OUR ATTENTION IS FOCUSED ON THE YOUTUBE CORPORATE CAMPUS SAN BRUNO, CALIFORNIA JUST SOUTH OF SAN FRANCISCO. AND THAT IS BECAUSE IF YOU HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING ANY OF OUR COVERAGE, YOU KNOW ALREADY THIS IS THE LATEST SCENE IN THIS COUNTRY OF THE NEW TERM THE ART, THE ACTIVE SHOOTER, THIS IS NOT A DRILL, SADLY LAW ENFORCEMENT MASS CONVERGED ON THE YOUTUBE CAMPUS BECAUSE OF REPORTS OF SHOTS FIRED. THERE ARE A FEW THINGS TO POINT OUT AS WE WATCH WHAT IS NOW GOING TO BE THIS FAMILIAR ENDLESS LOOP OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY. MOST OF IT LIKE WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT NOW LIVE, BUT A LOT OF IT WILL BE TAPED FROM EARLIER WHEN THE HELICOPTER FIRST ARRIVED AT THE LOCATION. WE HAVE SEEN A NOTABLE ABSENCE OF URGENCY BECAUSE THIS IS A TECH COMPANY AND BECAUSE THIS IS 2018, YOU WILL SEE ONE THING THAT ALL OF THE EVACUEES HAVE IN COMMON, THEY ARE ALL LOOKING DOWN. THAT IS BECAUSE EVERYONE WHO WORKS THERE IS ON THEIR PHONES. IF YOU HAVE A DEVICE, YOU HAVE READ ALL OF THIS ON SMOOED. SMOOED. YOU HAVE READ THAT THE BEGUN MAN IS A WOMAN. WE DON’T HAVE CONFIRMATION OF THAT. YOU SEE A WHOLE LOT OF LAW ENFORCEMENT IN ALL OF THE TRIBUTARY, STREETS IN AND OUT OF THIS AREA. OUR OWN TOM WINTER HAS BEEN LISTENING TO SCANNER TRAFFIC IN SAN BRUNO. SAN BRUNO PD AND THE SAN FRANCISCO METROPOLITAN AREA AT LARGE, TOM, WHAT ARE YOU HEARING THAT MAY FILL IN THE BLANKS?>>WELL, AT THIS TIME WE’RE JUST GETTING REALLY KIND OF MORE SELLS OF INFORMATION. WE’RE NOT REALLY GETTING A LOT OF A NARRATIVE. WE’RE NOT SEEING URGENCY. I THINK THAT SHOWS US THAT WHATEVER IT IS IS EITHER CONTAINED OR IS OVER AS FAR AS THE SHOOTER OR SHOOTERS. YOU MENTIONED SOMETHING BEFORE THAT IS NOT CONFIRMED, THAT IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE SUSPECT IN THE SHOOTING IS A WOMAN. AND I CANNOT THINK OF A RECENT MASS SHOOTING IN THIS COUNTRY THAT HAS INVOLVED A WOMAN. IN MOST CASES IT IS A WHITE MALE THAT WE SEE AS THE SHOOTER. AND SO THIS WOULD CERTAINLY BE A FIRST IN MODERN HISTORY IF IN FACT THIS SHOOTER IS A WOMAN. I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE COUNTERTERRORISM UNIT IS CLOSELY MONITORING THE REPORTS OF THE SHOOTING INCIDENT HERE AT YOUTUBE. AND I CAN TELL YOU FROM THE POLICE SCANNER THAT THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS OFNUMEROUS PEOPLE TRANSPORTED. WE’RE STARTING TO GET OUR OWN CONFIRMATION OF THAT AS WE LEARN THAT STANFORD HOSPITAL IS EXPECTING FOUR TO FIVE PATIENTS. AND THE ZUCKERBERG GENERAL HOSPITAL IS ALSO RECEIVING PATIENTS FROM U YOUTUBE HEADQUARTERS. SO WE DON’T KNOW THEIR INJURIES. WE DON’T KNOW IF THEY ARE FROM THE SHOOTING. OBVIOUSLY WHEN A SHOOTING LIKE THIS HAPPENS, SADLY AS THE ACTIVE SHOOTER PHRASE HAS ENTERED OUR LEXICON, EVERYBODY KNOWS TO RUN IF POSSIBLE TO GET OUT OF A POSSIBLE SHOOTING SITUATION. AND SO SOMETIMES THERE CAN BE INJURIES ASSOCIATED WITH THAT. WE HOPE THAT IS JUST THE CASE. BUT RIGHT NOW WE DON’T HAVE SORT OF A SENSE OF THE INJURIES THAT WE’RE FACING HERE AND WE DON’T HAVE AN OFFICIAL ALL CLEAR THAT WHOEVER MAY HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS IS IN FACT IN CUSTODY OR HAS BEEN SHOT THEMSELVES OR SHOT THEMSELVES. SO THAT IS THE SITUATION THAT WE KNOW RIGHT NOW. WE KNOW THAT WE HAVE A VERY SIGNIFICANT LAW ENFORCEMENT RESPONSE AT YOUTUBE HEADQUARTERS AND WE’RE CONTINUING TO MONITOR IT. I KNOW THAT MYSELF AND MY COLLEAGUE HAVE BEEN WORKINGS PHONES AS WELL AS LISTENING FOR POLICE CHATTER OUT THERE. SO FAR THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES HAVE NOT TRANSMITTED INFORMATION MORE BROADLY. USUALLY THAT HAPPENS, BUT DEPENDING UPON THE SITUATION THAT MIGHT NOT HAPPEN FOR A LITTLE WHILE HERE. SO AT THE MOMENT, ALL WE KNOW IS THAT THERE IS A REPORT OF AN ACTIVE SHOOTER. WE KNOW WE HAVE INJURIES. AND WE’RE WAITING FOR MORE INFORMATION FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND KEEP LISTENING. WE KNOW THAT LISTENING TO SCANNER TRAFFIC CAN BE DEEPLY UNSATISFYING BECAUSE AT THIS POINT AFTER THE INITIAL REPORTS AND UNITS HAVE BEEN DISDISPATCH IT BECOMES ABOUT STATUS CHECKS ON INDIVIDUAL ICHBTSCARS AND PERSONNEL. YOU SEE A STILL LIFE WHERE LIFE KIND OF STOPPED. SOME CHAIRS SCATTERED ABOUT, A VACANT BASKETBALL COURT. THIS IS ONE OF THE GREAT WORKER FRIENDLY CAMPUSES TO BE ASSIGNED TO. BECAUSE IT CAME UP IN THE MODERN AGE OF CREATURE COMFORTS. YOUNG PEOPLE SPENDING VAST NUMBER OF HOURS AT WORK, SO MAKE IT PLEASURABLE. THE CAMPUS IS RIGHT UP AGAINST WILDLANDS IN SAN BRUNO. THE BACK END OF IT GOES RIGHT TO WILDLANDS. THERE IS A GATE AROUND IT. AND WE SHOWED THE PICTURES OF THE POLICE DOING TSA-STYLE PATDOWNS. ONE BY ONE THERE IS ONLY ONE OFFICER DOING THIS. THAT IS TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE IS WHO THEY PURPORT TO BE. THAT IS TO MAKE SURE THAT EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE WEARING A YOUTUBE EMPLOYEE BADGE, THAT THAT IS SO YOU CAN RULE EVERYTHING OUT AND A PROCESS OF ELIMINATION. ONE OF THE LAW ENFORCEMENT ANNOUNCEMENTS WE’VE RECEIVED IN THE LAST FEW MINUTES IS THAT THE ATF SAN FRANCISCO FIELD DIVISION WHICH IS SIZABLE IS SENDING MEN AND WOMEN THERE. TOM, YOU HAVE A DETAIL?>>YES, GETTING SOME INFORMATION FILTERING THROUGH LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITY RIGHT NOW. THE SCENE IS STILL ACTIVE. AT THIS POINT THERE ARE NO REPORTED FATALITIES AT THIS TIME. SO THAT IS IMPORTANT. BUT AGAIN, THISIS PRELIMINARY. AND WE HAVE PEOPLE AT A HOSPITAL. SO THIS IS JUST BLIM INFORMATION PRELIMINARY INFORMATION. STILL ACTIVE AND LAW ENFORCEMENT AT THIS POINT BELIEVING THAT THE FEMALE — THAT THE SHOOTER IS IN FACT A WOMAN. AND THAT IS VERY UNUSUAL. SO WE’RE STARTING TO GET A LITTLE BIT OF INFORMATION FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT AGAIN THAT IS FROM A SENIOR LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL TO NBC NEWS THAT WE ARE STILL DEALING WITH AN ACTIVE SCENE. MEANING THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT IS STILL IN THE PROCESS OF GOING THROUGH THAT BUILDING AND THE PROCESS OF TRYING TO GET A PRELIMINARY SENSE OF WHAT HAPPENED. GOOD NEWS AND IT IS EARLY THAT THERE IS NO REPORTED FATALITIES AT THIS TIME. AND THERE IS A GROWING BELIEF THAT THE SHOOTER THAT WAS INVOLVED IN THIS INCIDENT WAS A WOMAN. SO THAT IS JUST THE VERY BASIC INFORMATION THAT WE HAVE AT THIS POINT.>>TOM, AGAIN HARD TO RECONCILE WORD THAT THIS IS AN ACTIVE SCENE WITH ALL AVAILABLE AERIAL PHOTOS. I THINK I HAVE SEEN TWO MEMBERS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT WALKING ANY FASTER THAN A STROLL. SO PERHAPS WHERE IT IS STILL ACTIVE, IF IT IS STILL ACTIVE, IT IS DEEP WITHIN THE CAMPUS AND EVERYTHING ELSE HAS BEEN DECLARED SECURE OR LOCKED DOWN. BUT AS TOM WAS WARNING, AS WE ALWAYS WARN IN THESE SITUATIONS, SO MANY EARLY REPORTS CAN BE WRONG. ONE MORE NOTE. YOUTUBE WAS LAST IN THE NEWS, WE DON’T KNOW THAT THIS IS GERMANE AT ALL, BUT THEIR ANNOUNCEMENT TO BAN VIDEOS THAT PROMOTE OR LINK TO WEBSITES SELLING FIREARMS AND ACCESSORIES INCLUDING BUMP STOCKS. YOUTUBE SAID IT WILL PROHIBIT VIDEOS WITH INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO ASSEMBLE FIREARMS. AS YOU KNOW IF YOU SPENT ANYTIME ON YOUTUBE, NO MATTER WHAT YOUR HOBBY OR FAVORITE THING TO DO IS, THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF VIDEOS TAILORED TO YOU. AND JUST SAYING THIS WAS THE LAST TIME AS A CORPORATE ENTITY YOUTUBE WAS IN THE NEWS. PETE WILLIAMS IS IN OUR WASHINGTON BUREAU. HE CAN ADD TO THIS. PETE.>>THE FEDERAL RESPONSE IS VERY SLOW AT THIS POINT. LARGELY BECAUSE OF THE SAN BRUNO POLICE, CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL AND THE COUNTY AUTHORITIES HAVE THE LEAD ON THIS. SO THE FEDS ARE OFFERING THEIR ASSISTANCE. BUT AT THIS STAGE WHAT THEY WILL BE DOING IS PROVIDING ANY INVESTIGATIVE WORK THAT HAS TO BE DONE ONCE THE BUILDING IS CLEARED. WHICH IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE FIRST RESPONDERS. IN THIS CASE THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES. SO THE INFORMATION 234R0E TO THE FEDERAL FOLKS THAT WE WOULD NORMALLY HEAR IN RIGHT NOW JUST HASN’T GONE IN THAT DIRECTION YET.NORMALLY HEAR IN RIGHT NOW HASN’T GONE IN THAT DIRECTION YET.FEDERAL FOLKS THAT WE WOULD NORMALLY HEAR IN RIGHT NOW JUST HASN’T GONE IN THAT DIRECTION YET. BUT ONCE IT IS CLEARED, FBI AND ATF CAN HELP THE CONSIDERABLE MANPOWER THAT THEY HAVE ALREADY DO ALL THE INVESTIGATIVE WORK THAT HAS TO BE DONE TO BUILD A CASE. ALL THE FORENSIC, BALLISTIC WORK, WHERE WERE SHOTS FIRED, WHERE DID THEY COME FROM, MORE ON THE SUSPECT. SO THEY ARE ON SCENE IN STANDBY MODE. THIS IS STANDARD PROTOCOL, THEY WILL SET UP A COMMAND CENTER THAT WILL COORDINATE ALL OF THE VARIOUS AGENCIES THAT ARE THERE BECAUSE YOU’VE POLICE, COUNTY SHERIFFS, CHP, FIRE, YOU’VE GOT AMBULANCES. YOU HAVE EMTs, YOU WILL HAVE THE FEDS. SO THAT IS TO COME IN THE SUBSEQUENT HOURS. SO FRANKLY WHEN THE FEDERAL AUTHORITIES ARE MORE IN THE PICTURE, WE GET MORE INFORMATION FLOWING FASTER. SO THAT IS WHY WE REALLY IN TERMS OF THE PEOPLE WE NORMALLY TALK TO EVERY DAY HERE IN WASHINGTON, THEY ARE BASICALLY IN THE RECEIVE MODE RIGHT NOW.>>THANK YOU. KARA SWISHER IS WITH US BY TELEPHONE. HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE ADD TO ANYTHING FURTHER SINCE YOUR CONVERSATION WITH NICOLLE WALLACE?>>NO, JUST THAT THE SHOOTER HAD BEEN DISABLED IN SOME WAY FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND. IT WAS IN THE BUILDING. AND THAT SEVERAL PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SHOT. WE HEAR PEOPLE FROM INSIDE YOUTUBE. BUT AGAIN, YOU HAVE TO GET THAT CONFIRMATION FROM POLICE OR THE COMPANY ITSELF. BUT I THINK NOTHING MORE THAN EXCEPT THAT THEY ARE SHOOK UP BY THIS AND HAD NOT EXPECTED IT. THE CAMPUSES ARE VERY EASY TO GET INTO. PEOPLE — THEY TRY TO CREATE AN OPEN ENVIRONMENT AS A WORKPLACE, VERY UPLIFTING WORKPLACE. AND SO I THINK THIS WILL BE A REAL BLOW TO THE WAY PEOPLE WORK IN SILICON VALLEY FOR SURE.>>I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED CONFIRMATION OF A FEMALE SUSPECT DOWN AND DECEASED. SO FOR ALL THE HISTORIC REASONS THAT THIS WOULD BE SO HIGHLY UNUSUAL. YOU MADE A POINT I’D LIKE TO GO BACK TO. FOR ALL OF US WORKING IN A DEPRESSION ERA BUILDING IN MIDTOWN MANHATTAN THAT WAS BUILT FOR THE ERA AND HAS BEEN RETROFITTED SOMEWHAT, THIS YOUTUBE CAMPUS WAS PART OF THE NEW WAVE. WE EASTERNERS ALL LOOKED AT IT WITH WONDER. THEY HAD STATIONERY BICYCLE, COMFORTABLE FURNITURE, ACTUAL FOOD FOR THE EMPLOYEES FOR THE TAKING. AND I’M GUESSING THAT THIS IS RIGHT UP THERE WITH AMONG THE VERY BEST.>>YEAH, IT IS. I JUST WAS THERE SPEAKING AT YOUTUBE TO THE EMPLOYEES. I WENT THERE TO TALK ABOUT THE PRESS AND YOUTUBE CHALLENGES. AND SO IT IS A VERY OPEN ENVIRONMENT, VERY COLORFUL, THEY HAVE BIG SCREENS AND VIDEOS. AN ACTUAL SLIDE. OUTDOOR AREAS TO EAT, BASKETBALL COURTS. AND THIS HAPPENS TO BE A VERY SMALL CAMPUS COMPARED TO GOOGLE WHICH IS A VERY LARGE COLLEGELIKE CAMPUS. THIS IS JUST A BUILDING ON THE STREET. AND KEPT THERE BECAUSE YOUTUBE FOUNDERS WANTED TO BE RUN SEPARATELY AND GOOGLE AGREED THAT YOUTUBE EVEN THOUGH IT IS OWNED BY GOOGLE, THAT IT SHOULD BE RUN SEPARATELY. SO THEY TRIED TO CULTIVATE A DIFFERENT>>>THIS IS AN NBC NEWS SPECIAL REPORT. HERE’S LESTER HOLT.>>GOOD DAY. WE CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE BREAKING DEVELOPMENTS OUT OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. A SHOOTING AT THE CAMPUS OF YOUTUBE IN SAN BRUNO. A SUSPECT, A WOMAN, ACCORDING TO POLICE, IS DEAD. WE DON’T HAVE INFORMATION OTHER CASUALTIES OTHER THAN SEVERAL HOSPITALS ARE SAID TO BE RECEIVING OR EXPECTING PATIENTS. ONE OF THE HOSPITALS HOLDING A NEWS CONFERENCE. LET’S LISTEN.>>ONE WOMAN IN SERIOUS AND ONE IN FAIR?>>THAT’S CORRECT.>>32, 27, AND — >>AND 36. 36 IS CRITICAL. THAT’S THE MALE. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION SFCHLD. >>WHAT PARTS OF THEIR BODIES? I CAN’T SHARE THAT.>>YOU’RE EXPECTING MORE PEOPLE, ARE YOU EXPECTING MORE PEOPLE IN CRITICAL CONDITION OR SERIOUS CONDITION? OR — DO WE KNOW?>>HONESTLY, I DON’T KNOW. I DON’T KNOW THE CONDITIONS OF THE PEOPLE WE EXPECT. AT 3:30 THIS AFTERNOON, WE’RE GOING TO CONVENE AGAIN. I’LL BRING A TRAUMA SURGEON FROM OUR TRAUMA PRACTICE HERE TO EXPLAIN IN GREATER DEPTH WHAT THE INJURIES ARE. BRENT ANDREW.>>I JUST GOT HERE. CAN YOU SPEAK AGAIN?>>FIRST, WE RECEIVED THREE PATIENTS. — A MALE — A FEMALE IF SERIOUS CONDITION.>>YOU’RE LISTENING THERE TO SF GENERAL SPOKESPERSON, WE BELIEVE, BRENT ANDREW FROM SF GENERAL.>>LESTER HOLT IN NEW YORK. WE HAVE DIPPED INTO THIS NEWS CONFERENCE. BRETT ANDREWS, A SPOKINGMAN FOR SAN FRANCISCO GENERAL HOSPITAL. HIS HOSPITAL CONFIRMING THEY HAVE RECEIVED THREE PATIENTS FROM THIS APPARENT SHOOTING AT YOUTUBE HEAD QUARTERS. ONE OF THEM IN CRITICAL CONDITION. ONE OF AT LEAST THREE HOSPITALS WE HAVE HEARD FROM SAID TO BE RECEIVING OR EXPECTING PATIENTS. WE DON’T HAVE OVERALL NUMBER. WE KNOW THE SUSPECT, A WOMAN, IS DECEASED. BEYOND THAT, HARD TO KNOW WHAT SCHAAPING INSIDE THE BUILDINGS. MULTIPLE BUILDINGS ON THE CAMPUS. JUST SOUTH OF SAN FRANCISCO. IT WAS ABOUT LUNCH HOUR THERE. PACIFIC TIME. THAT THE CALL WENT OUT OF AN ACTIVE SHOOTER AT THAT CAMPUS AND LED THE HUGE RESPONSE. A NUMBER OF HOSPITALS NOW RECEIVING PATIENTS. JOE FRYER IS IN OUR LOS ANGELES NEWS ROOM. WHAT DO YOU HAVE?>>AT THIS POINT, WE DON’T KNOW THE NUMBER OF VICTIMS WHO WERE SHOT. WE KNOW AT LEAST THREE HOSPITALS IN THE AREA ARE TAKING IN PATIENTS. THE ONE YOU JUST SAW THERE, SAN FRANCISCO GENERAL, THAT IS THE MAIN LEVEL 1 TRAUMA CENTER IN THE AREA. THE IDEA IS THAT THE MOST CRITICALLY INJURED MAY GO THERE, ASSUMING THEY CAN GET THEM THERE SAFETY AND IN TIME. AS WE HEARD. WE THINK AT LEAST ONE OF THOSE PATIENTS IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION. FOUR TO FIVE OTHER PATIENTS EXPECTED AT STANFORD MEDICAL CENTER. WE DON’T KNOW THEIR CONDITIONS. ONE PATIENT WAS TREATED FOR AN ANGLE INJURY NEARBY AT KAISER PERMANENTE IN SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO. THE ONLY FATALITY WE KNOW OF AT THIS POINT IS THE SHOOTER. THE FEMALE SHOOTER. WE DON’T KNOW HOW THAT FEMALE SHOOTER DIED? AT HER HAND OR THE HANDS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT. PERHAPS POLICE WILL SHED LIGHT ON THAT AT THE NEWS CONFERENCE COMING UP. GOOGLE OWNS YOUTUBE. THEY PUT OUT A STATEMENT SAYING THEY’RE COOPERATING WITH AUTHORITIES AND WILL PROVIDE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FROM GOOGLE AND YOUTUBE AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE. LESTER?>>JOE FRYER. THANK YOU. YOU SAW THE NEWS CONFERENCE AT SAN FRANCISCO GENERAL. WE’RE EXPECTING THE POLICE CHIEF OF SAN BRUNO TO GO BEFORE THE PRESS. WE SHOULD GET A BRIEFING, AN OVERALL PICTURE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING. THERE’S THE SCENE WHERE WE EXPECT THE POLICE CHIEF TO JOIN US SHORTLY. TO GIVE US THE VERY LATEST. THIS AGAIN HAPPENING AROUND THE LUNCH HOUR. IN CALIFORNIA. IT’S A — A CAMPUS LIKE MANY OF THE SOCIAL MEDIA AND TECH GIANTS IN THE SILICON VALLEY. IT’S A CAMPUS THERE. AREAS WHERE PEOPLE CAN SIT OUTSIDE. ENJOY THE WEATHER. HAVE LUNCH. NOT CLEAR WHICH BUILDING THIS OCCURRED IN. THERE IS THE MAP. SAN BRUNO. YOUTUBE HEADQUARTERS. SAN BRUNO ABUTS THE SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. ALL THE REPORTS WE HAVE ARE OF INJURED PEOPLE TAKEN TO HOSPITALS. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING INSIDE. THEY BELIEVE SIT A LONE SUSPECT NOW DECEASED. WE SAW GROUPS OF PRESUMABLY EMPLOYEES LED OUT OF THE BUILDING WITH THEIR HANDS IN THE AIR. A PROCEDURE WE HAVE SEEN TIME AND TIME AGAIN AT MASS SHOOTINGS. PEOPLE BROUGHT IN AND TAKEN TO AREAS THAT POLICE DESIGNATED SAFE ZONES. WANT TO BRING IN PETE WILLIAMS NOW, OUR JUSTICE CORRESPONDENT. HE’S BEEN MONITORING THIS WITH ME. WHAT IS THE RESPONSE TO THIS? WHERE DOES IT GO?>>WHERE IT GOES IS THAT THE FEDERAL AUTHORITIES WILL NOW LEND ASSISTANCE IN TERMS OF INVESTIGATE WHOG THIS WOMAN WAS AND WHAT LED UP TO THE SHOOTING. THEY’LL LEARN HER IDENTITY AT SOME POINT. WITNESS THEY CONFIRM IT, THEY’LL GO TO A COURT AND GET PERMISSION TO SEARCH HER HOME OR APARTMENT. THEY’LL TRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW SHE GOT THERE. DID SHE DRIVE? WAS SHE DRIVEN BY SOMEONE ELSE?>>A UNDERSTAND A NEWS CONFERENCE HAS BEGUN. THIS IS THE POLICE CHIEF, CHIEF BARBARINI.>>UPON ARRIVAL, OFFICERS ENCOUNTERED NUMEROUS EMPLOYEES FLEEING FROM THE BUILDING. IT WAS VERY CHAOTIC. WE DID EVENT KOUNER ONE PERSON WITH A GUNSHOT WOUND TOWARD THE FRONT OF THE BUSINESS WHEN WE ARRIVED. AS CONDUCTING A SEARCH, OFFICERS LOCATED A SECOND INDIVIDUAL WITH A GUNSHOT WOUND THAT APPEARS MAY HAVE BEEN SELF-INFLICTED. WE’RE WORKING ON CONFIRMING THAT. TWO ADDITIONAL VICTIMS WERE LOCATED. SEVERAL MINUTES LATER. AT AN ADJACENT BUSINESS. THE EXTENT OF THE INJURIES ARE UNKNOWN. ALL THE VICTIMS WERE TRANSPORTED. THEY’RE ALL UNKNOWN. IF I MISSED THAT, WE HAVE FOUR VICTIMS WHO HAVE ALL BEEN TRANCE PORTED FOR — FOR GUNSHOT-RELATED INJURIES. AND WE HAVE ONE SUBJECT DECEASED INSIDE THE BUILDING WITH A SELF-INFLICTED WOUND. AT THIS TIME, WE BELIEVE THAT TO BE THE SHOOTER. WE’RE STILL FOLLOWING UP ON THAT. MULTIPLE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES HAVE RESPONDED TO ASSIST. WE’RE GRATEFUL FOR EVERYONE’S HELP AND ASSISTANCE. WE COULD NOT HAVE ACCOMPLISHED THIS WITHOUT EVERYBODY’S HELP. THIS IS AN ACTIVE EVENT AND AN ACTIVE INVESTIGATION. NUMEROUS LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL FROM NUMEROUS LOCAL AGENCIES ARE CONDUCTING A SEARCH OF THE BUSINESS TO MAKE SURE IT IS CLEAR. WE CONDUCTED A QUICK, IMMEDIATE, SEARCH OF THE PREMISES. WHEN THE FIRST OFFICERS ARRIVED AS PUSUANT TO OUR ACTIVE SHOOTER PROTOCOL. NOW WE’RE GOING THROUGH WITH A SLOW SEARCH. THE TIME OF THE NEXT PRESS UPDATE, WE’LL PUT THAT OUT AS SOON AS WE HAVE THE INFORMATION.>>I’M HEARING FROM YOUTUBE EMPLOYEES, THERE WERE TWO SHOOTERS A MAN AND A WOMAN. CAN YOU CONFIRM?>>NO. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]>>IT’S A FEMALE.>>THE VICTIMS. ARE THEY SURVIVABLE INJURIES?>>MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN TRANSPORTED. THEY’RE BEING TREATED FOR INJURIES THAT ARE TREATABLE. WE’RE HOPING FOR THE BEST.>>ARE THERE MORE PEOPLE INSIDE THE BUILDING?>>MY UNDERSTANDING IS THE BUILDING IS EVACUATED. THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THE IMMEDIATE AREA. WE’RE TRYING TO CONTACT A LARGE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE TO TRY TO IDENTIFY AND GAIN INFORMATION FROM WITNESSES AT THE SCENE. IT’S A MONUMENTAL TASK WITH THE NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES THAT WORK THERE. I’M SORRY?>>CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE WEAPON OR WEAPONS?>>I DON’T HAVE THAT INFORMATION. I’M SORRY. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]>>WE HAVE — I HAVEN’T TAKEN INVENTORY OF THE AGENCIES YET. WE WORK WELL WITH NEIGHBORING PARTNERS. WE’RE GRATEFUL THAT THEY’RE HERE. THERE’S A LOT OF THEM.>>YOU TO HAVE A GENDER OF A SHOOTER?>>YES. I WANT TO CLARIFY WE LOCATED A VICTIM WITH A — WE BELIEVE TO BE A SELF-INFLICTED WOUND. IT’S A FEMALE. THE INVESTIGATION IS STILL ONGOING.>>IS THIS PERSON AN EXEMPLOYEE?>>I DON’T HAVE INFORMATION REGARDING THAT.>>ARE YOU LOOKING FOR ANOTHER SHOOTER?>>WE’RE CLEARING THE BUILDING AND SERGING THE BUILDING LIKE WE WOULD DO ANY WAY. WE HAVEN’T ELIMINATED THAT POSSIBILITY. WE HAVE NO INFORMATION TO SUGGEST THAT SOMEONE ELSE IS IN THERE THAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR.>>WHERE ARE THE EMPLOYEES NOW? WE SAW THEM WALKING DOWN THE STREET.>>A LOT OF EMPLOYEES SELF-EVACUATED. AS YOU CAN IMAGINE. WE HAVE IDENTIFIED A GROUP WE WANT TO TALK TO. WE HAVE STAGING AREAS WHERE OUR DETECTIVES ARE REACHING OUT THE THEM. WE’RE TRYING TO DO IT AS ORDERLY AS WE CAN. A LOT OF PEOPLE. A HECTIC SCENARIO. IT’S A TASK.>>ARE THERE PPLE — >>ARE THERE STILL PEOPLE IN THE BUILDING? BESIDES THE ONES YOUR IDENTIFYING?>>MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THE BUILDING IS EVACUATED.>>HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT HERE?>>SEVERAL HUNDRED. A FEW HUNDRED. IT WAS MY UNDERSTANDING.>>IN WHAT — >>I DON’T KNOW.>>WAS A BOYFRIEND THERE?>>I HAVE NO IDEA. I HAVE NO IDEA. I DON’T KNOW THE CIRCUMSTANCES. I DON’T WANT TO ELIMINATE ANY POSSIBILITY. I DON’T KNOW ANY OF THAT FOR SURE. THIS IS STILL ACTIVE. WE’RE STILL INVESTIGATING AS I’M SPEAKING TO YOU. THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS I DON’T KNOW.>>IS IT TRUE THAT THE SHOTS STARTED IN THE COURTYARD?>>I DON’T HAVE THAT INFORMATION. I’LL TRY TO GET YOU AN UPDATE AS SOON AS WE CAN. I’VE GIVEN YOU ALMOST EVERYTHING WE KNOW AT THIS POINT. WHEN WE KNOW — I DON’T WANT TO GIVE YOU A TIME. I MAY NOT HAVE A LOT FOR YOU. WHEN WE CAN IDENTIFY A TIME THAT IS APPROPRIATE TO COME BACK AND UPDATE YOU, WE’LL DO IT IMMEDIATELY.>>HOW WILL YOU PUT THAT OUT?>>PROBABLY THROUGH OUR MEDIA LIST AND SOCIAL MEDIA.>>THAT IS CHIEF ED BARBERINI OF THE SAN BRUNO POLICE DEPARTMENT. EXPLAINING WHAT THEY KNOW HAS OCCURRED AT THE YOUTUBE HEADQUARTERS TODAY. THE SUSPECT, A WOMAN, IS DECEASED. AS HE DESCRIBES, THERE WERE THREE OTHER GUNSHOT VICTIMS WOUNDED. THEY HAVE BEEN TRANSPORTED TO HOSPITALS. THOSE NUMBERS DON’T NECESSARILY JIBE WITH THE NUMBERS OF WHAT HOSPITALS WERE EXPECTING. BUT FOR NOW, WE KNOW A SUSPECT, APPARENTLY DEAD OF A SELF-INFLICTED GUNSHOT AND THREE OTHER GUNSHOT VICTIMS. BEING TREATED. I WANT TO GO TO JOE FRYER. WHO HAS BEEN MONITORING ALL THIS ALONG WITH ME. JOE, AS I SAID, THE HOSPITALS, THREE OTHER HOSPITALS REPORTING A NUMBER THAT TOTALS MORE THAN THAT.>>YEAH, AND WE HAVE TO KEEP IN MIND, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT THOSE INJURIES ARE THAT PEOPLE WERE TALK ON THE THE HOSPITAL FOR. IT’S A TENSE SITUATION. WE KNOW THAT THREE PATIENTS WERE TAKEN TO THE LEVEL 1 TRAUMA CENTER. SAN FRANCISCO GENERAL HOSPITAL. THOSE MIGHT BE THE THREE GUNSHOT VICTIMS. ONE MALE IN CRITICAL. ONE FEMALE IN SERIOUS. ANOTHER FEMALE IN FAIR. WE WERE TOLD FOUR TO FIVE PEOPLE WERE TAKEN TO ANOTHER MEDICAL CENTER. WE DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS GUNSHOT WOUNDS OR ANOTHER INJURY THEY MIGHT HAVE SUFFERED. A THIRD PERSON WAS TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. THAT WAS AN ANKLE INJURY. THAT MIGHT BE THE KEY ISSUE HERE. WHAT WERE THE INJURIES? WHY WERE PEOPLE TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. THREE PEOPLE ARE AT THE LEVEL 1 TRAUMA CENTER. CRITICAL, SERIOUS, AND FAIR CONDITIONS THEY’RE IN.>>THE CHIEF UNABLE TO DESCRIBE THE WEAPON USED. NOTHING ABOUT MOTIVES. THEY, AS ALWAYS IN THE CASES, THEY CAN SEARCH THE AREA AND SECURE THE AREA. THEY BELIEVE ONE SHOOTER. AND AGAIN, THAT DECEASED WOMAN. LET ME BRING BACK PETE WILLIAMS. PETE?>>I THINK THE GOOD NEWS IF YOU CAN USE SUCH A TERM IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS, IS — ONLY ONE FATALITY. IF THAT’S HOW THINGS GO IN THE COMING HOURS. IF THE PATIENT WHO IS CRITICAL REMAINS CRITICAL AND IMPROVES, THEN GIVEN THE — WAY THAT THE WITNESSES DESCRIBED HEARING ALL THESE GUNSHOTS TO KNOW THAT THIS IS THE RESULT IS — CERTAINLY — ENCOURAGING, IF THAT IS THE RIGHT WORD. TWO THINGS ARE HAPPENING NOW. AND WHY THE CHIEF SAID THIS IS AN ACTIVE INVESTIGATION. YES, THE POLICE HAVE BEEN THROUGH THE BUILDING QUICKLY. NOW THEY’LL GO METHODICALLY, ROOM TO ROOM, THIS IS THE STANDARD PROTOCOL ON SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO MAKE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN OF TWO THINGS. NUMBER ONE, THERE’S NOBODY ELSE THAT IS ARMED AND FIRING SHOTS. OR HOLDING ANYONE AT GUN POINT. AND TWO THAT THERE ARE NO OTHER VICK IMS THAT THEY HAVE MISSED. TWO CRITICAL THINGS THEY’LL HAVE TO DO IN AN EXTENSIVE ROOM-TO-ROOM SEARCH. THAT ANSWER WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE BUILDINGS YOU’RE LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW. THEN, IN TERMS OF THE SECOND IS THE INVESTIGATION THAT WILL BEGIN AT THE SCENE. TO LOOK AT HOW MANY SHOTS WERE FIRED? WHERE DID THEY COME FROM? WHERE DID THEY GO? ALL OF THE BALLISTIC AND FORENSIC WORK TO BE DONE. THIRD, TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHO THIS WOMAN SAND WHY SHE DID IT.>>PETE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THE WAY THE CHIEF DESCRIBED IT, IT SOUNDS LIKE ONE OF THE VICTIMS, OFFICERS ENCOUNTERED OUTSIDE. THEY WOULD DISCOVER THE OTHERS AS THEY WENT FURTHER INTO THE BUILDING. AGAIN, WE’RE AT THE POINT NOW, THE FACTS ARE — COMING IN IN DRIBBLES RIGHT NOW. WE’LL CONTINUE TO TELL YOU WHAT WE KNOW AND DON’T KNOW. WE’LL HAVE FULL COVERAGE WHEN WE SEE YOU ON THE AIR FOR “NBC NIGHTLY NEWS.” FOR NOW, GOOD DA
