Active shooter at YouTube HQ. Heard shots and saw people running while at my desk. Now barricaded inside a room with coworkers.

“Shooter on the YouTube campus. I heard gunshots and saw people running past my desk. Now I barricaded myself in the room with my colleagues ”

YouTube project manager Todd Sherman detail told how he found the time of the shooting.

When we were sitting at the meeting, we heard a thunder on the floor. At first it was thought that this earthquake. Leaving the room, we still did not understand what was happening, but saw a lot of running people.

It was noticeable that this was something serious, not a training alarm. We ran to the exit, where we saw even more people. Someone said that there was an armed man there. Heck.

By the time I saw the arrow in each counter. Someone said that the attacker shot through the back doors, and then committed suicide. I looked down and saw a drop of blood on the floor and steps. I looked around, and then we continued to descend.

When I ran out into the street, I saw the policemen arriving with rifles. I described the situation to them and ran on to my colleagues. Now I’m going home to Uber, I hope everything’s all right.
