Family of YouTube shooter extends condolences, investigation continues

Investigators will likely scrutinize Aghdam's movements during the almost nine-hour drive from her family's home near San Diego to YouTube's headquarters and will examine the freaky videos she posted online and the posts about her, as well as look for any messages she may have sent to company officials.

Aghdam posted about animal rights and veganism but she expressed frustration with YouTube allegedly demonetizing those videos.

She specifically said she had no plans to harm herself or others, police said.

She took target practice at a local gun range later that morning, then drove to YouTube headquarters on Cherry Lane in San Bruno, walked into a company patio area and shot three people before killing herself, police have said.

Aghdam also ran a Farsi-language channel on the messaging app Telegram, which had 6,000 followers, but she was virtually unknown in Iran, where some 40 million people are believed to use the service. One video was a tutorial on buttocks massage, and another featured a song praising Bahaism, a religion that originated in Iran but is heavily suppressed by the Islamic Republic.
