A shooting at the YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California on Tuesday has left at least four people wounded.
Police confirmed the suspected shooter, a woman, was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
According to a spokesperson for Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, three victims with gunshot wounds were brought to the hospital.
Two are said to be in critical condition and another in fair condition.
One other victim hurt their ankle while fleeing.

Beginning at 12:46 p.m. local time, San Bruno Police Department received numerous 9-1-1 calls reporting gunfire at YouTube's headquarters.
According to witnesses, two or three shots were fired before a brief pause, …followed by about ten more shots, …with the incident taking about 30 seconds.
Videos and photos posted online show police officers running into the offices, …and the 11-hundred employees working at the headquarters evacuating in a line with their hands above their heads.
A crowd of people gathered outside the headquarters were frisked and patted down by officers one by one, before reports emerged that the incident had been carried out by the lone shooter.

Police investigating the shooting say they're still looking into the motive, but reports say that the shooter is believed to have known at least one of the victims.
Just last month, YouTube announced that it would ban contents that promote the sale of guns and gun accessories as well as videos that teach how to make guns.
