CALIFORNIA — A female gunman reportedly died of a self-inflicting gunshot in an incident of cross-firing at the headquarters of the YouTube on Tuesday at San Bruno in California.

Officers and federal agents swarmed the company’s headquarters in the city of San Bruno as multiple 911 calls came in reporting gunfire.

The woman has opened fire at YouTube headquarters, setting off a panic among employees and wounding three people before fatally shooting herself, police and witnesses said.

MSNBC reported that police believe a woman in her 30s approached an outdoor patio and dining area on the campus around lunchtime and began to fire, before turning the gun on herself.

Senior law enforcement officials believe the motive behind the shooting stemmed from a domestic dispute, MSNBC and other media reported.

San Bruno police chief Ed Barberini told reporters three victims had gunshot wounds and were taken to hospital. A fourth person suffered an ankle injury while trying to flee.

“It’s transitioning more from a tactical or active fluid situation to more of a static investigative effort, and we are going to be out here for some time,” he said.

Further, four civilians were reportedly injured in the incident.

According to the media reports, the South Francisco police posted on its Twitter handle to warn people to stay away from the YouTube’s office.
