At least four people - one of which authorities say the gunwoman likely knew - were taken to a local hospital to be treated.
 

The shooter at the Youtube campus in San Bruno, California is now suspected to have been a woman who authorities suspect shot herself dead at the scene after shooting her victims, at least one of which she likely knew, says CNN.

According to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, the facility treated at least three people - a 36-year-old man who is in critical condition, a 32-year-old woman in serious condition and a 27-year-old woman in fair condition. A fourth victim was also taken to a local hospital according to a San Bruno police department press release.

One YouTube employee said during the shooting people were trying to get out of the building "as fast as they could."

Witnesses who were at a Carl's Jr. fast-food restaurant across the street from the Youtube headquarters tell local media that they heard two or three shots and later about 10 shots coming from the Youtube building. One of the victims ran over to the Carl's Jr. with a leg wound and people tried to prevent further bleeding by placing napkins over her wounds.

San Bruno, California police were on site since noon local time at YouTube responding to an "active shooter incident." Police are asking the public to stay away from Cherry Ave & Bay Hill Drive of San Bruno.

According to CBS News Stanford Health Care has treated four to five shooting victims.

Armed SWAT police forces can be seen surrounding the social media headquarter as employees evacuate from inside. Police officers are patting down employees as they enter the building’s parking lot.

During the incident, a Youtube employee, Vadim Lavrusik, tweeted that he and other colleagues had barricaded themselves inside a room, but later updated his Twitter account saying that they had escaped safely.

San Bruno is about 20 km south of downtown San Francisco. San Bruno City Manager, Connie Jackson, reported earlier to the local media outlet, KTVU, that "the situation is being handled. We have adequate police responders handling the situation. The public should stay away from the area."
