A shooting at the popular social media site, YouTube, headquarters is helping to ignite the gun control debate once again.

On April 3rd, 2018, Nasim Aghdam, open-fired at the YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California.

Around 12:45 p.m., police responded to multiple reports of gunshots, and as police arrived, they met a multitude of employees running from the building.

Three people were shot, none were life-threatening: a 32-year-old woman in serious condition, a 27-year-old woman in fair condition and a 36-year-old man in critical condition.

Andre Campbell, a trauma surgeon at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, said that gun shot victims are a regular occurrence at the hospital.

Police think that the shooter went after YouTube because her videos became demonetized (so she was not earning money on her videos). The shooting also comes as YouTube changed their policy, banning content that promotes the sale of guns and accessories such as bump stocks.

All victims are on track to make a full recovery.
