Woman Shooter Kills Herself after Opening Fire at Youtube Headquarters
A woman opened fire with a handgun at the campus headquarters of the Youtube social media website near San Francisco Tuesday, wounding three before killing herself.
Police have not yet identified any of the victims or the shooter, but say they believe it was part of a domestic dispute.
A hospital spokesman in San Francisco says it is treating the wounded -- two women in fair condition and a man who was in critical condition as of late Tuesday.
San Bruno, California Police Chief Ed Barberini says officers rushed to the Youtube campus after receiving numerous 9-1-1 calls. He says the shooter is believed to have opened fire at an outdoor patio, where employees were enjoying lunch.
Workers inside the building tweeted that they heard gunshots and people running as they huddled in the offices for safety. One man said he saw drops of blood on the floor and in a stairway.
The shooter's body was found in the building. One of the wounded women managed to escape to a nearby fast food restaurant.
Trump Plans to Deploy Troops to Mexican Border
Troops are to be dispatched to America’s border with Mexico to thwart further illegal immigration, U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters on Tuesday.
"I think that it’s something that we have to do," the president said in response to a question from a reporter at the afternoon event in the White House East Room.
The president and several cabinet members, including Defense Secretary James Mattis, Homeland Security Secretary Kirsten Nielsen, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, received a briefing Tuesday to examine his administration’s strategy. The discussion included the mobilization of the National Guard and the need to pressure Congress to urgently pass legislation to close legal loopholes exploited by criminal trafficking, narco-terrorist and smuggling organizations.
The Pentagon responded to Trump's plan to use military to guard the borders.
"We are still consulting with the White House," a senior defense official said, promising more information.
Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray Caso said on Twitter his government has asked the United States to clarify Trump's announcement. He wrote Mexico will define its position based on that clarification, and always in defense of its sovereignty and national interests.
