San Bruno City Manager: Multiple 911 Calls Are Reporting A Shooting At YouTube Headquarters




San Bruno police are responding to an active shooter near YouTube’s headquarters and are urging residents to stay away from the area.

“We are responding to an active shooter. Please stay away from Cherry Ave & Bay Hill Drive,” The San Bruno police department tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

The City manager of San Bruno, California, says multiple 911 calls are reporting a shooting at YouTube headquarters.

Several YouTube employees sent tweets Tuesday afternoon saying employees were running out of the company’s Cherry Avenue offices shortly after 1 p.m.

The L.A. Times reports:

Producers from YouTube tweeted that they believed there was an active shooter on the company’s campus. Some said they heard so many people running that they believed an earthquake had struck. Others described a gruesome scene.

“I looked down and saw blood drips on the floor and stairs,” Todd Sherman, a YouTube producer, wrote on Twitter. “Peaked around for threats and then we headed downstairs and out the front.”



YouTube employee Vadim Lavrusik reported hearing gunshots before he barricaded himself inside his office. He has since been evacuated from the building.

A spokesperson for Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital said the hospital received patients from the incident, reports NBC News.
