“Active shooter” is a general police term meaning only that someone may have fired a shot and has not been stopped or taken into custody.
No information on the active shooter or shooters was immediately available. Zuckerberg General Hospital told that it had received three patients, while Stanford Medical Center said it was expecting four or five patients.
NBC reported that the shooter, a women, is down. Multiple victims were apparently transferred to the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, but no fatalities have been reported yet.
YouTube’s parent company Google said that they are
“coordinating with authorities and will provide official information here from Google and YouTube as it becomes available.”
YouTube headquarters is about 12 miles south of downtown San Francisco, close to San Francisco International Airport. The San Bruno offices house 1,700 employees in a largely open-plan environment, in four different buildings.
