Armed police have stormed Youtube global headquarters in Silicon Valley

Armed police have stormed Youtube global headquarters in Silicon Valley where an active gunman was on the loose. A local hospital confirmed to Fox News it was receiving "multiple patients.

Dan Noyes, the chief investigative reporter for local news station ABC 7, confirmed the shooter was a white woman wearing a headscarf.

“We are responding to an active shooter. Please stay away from Cherry Ave & Bay Hill Drive.”

We are working on an active investigation at YouTube. We're asking that you just follow us on social media for any updates."

The Guardian reports: Todd Sherman, a product manager in the building, wrote on Twitter: "We were sitting in a meeting and then we heard people running because it was rumbling the floor. First thought was an earthquake."

 

On the way out of the building he "looked down and saw blood drips on the floor and stairs".

He added: "Police cruisers pulled up, hopped out with rifles ready and I told them where the situation was."

Vadim Lavrusik, a YouTube employee, tweeted that he and his colleagues were inside the offices and saw people running and barricaded themselves inside the offices.

After around 20 minutes he tweeted again to say that he had been evacuated, and footage from helicopters showed hundreds of employees leaving the sprawling campus, being checked for weapons as they went.

“I was on a video conference with someone in the building when it happened,” one woman, who did not want to be identified, told CNN.

“We were suddenly aware of people running and screaming. The people on the video conference became scared and said: ‘I have to get out of here.’

“We called security, who had already been made aware of the incident. We heard on the video conference sounds of people running and screaming, but it was hard to hear anything else at that time.”

The woman said her colleague later told her that she did not hear any shots.
