The suspect believed to have carried out a shooting outside of YouTube’s headquarters in California has been named as animal rights activist Nasim Aghdam, San Bruno Police have confirmed.
In a press release, the force said that the 39-year-old Aghdam’s motive was being investigated.
It read: “The deceased, pictured below, has been identified as Nasim Najafi Aghdam a 39-year-old female resident of San Diego, CA.
“The San Bruno Police Department is investigating a motive for this shooting.
“At this time there is no evidence that the shooter knew the victims of this shooting or that individuals were specifically targeted.”
Earlier, Ed Barberini, the San Bruno Police Chief, said a woman had opened fire on Tuesday, shooting two other females and a male.
The woman in her late 30s had long blasted YouTube for “filtering” her videos and blamed it for her lack of views in recent content.

Ms Aghdam’s website, where she promoted her YouTube material and social media presence, vented at YouTube for providing “no equal growth opportunity”.
She wrote: “There is no equal growth opportunity on YouTube or any other video sharing site, your channel will grow if they want to!!!!!”
“And turning people into programmed robots!”
Her YouTube channel was removed this morning.
He stated: “I know a lot of you are in shock right now. Over the coming days, we will continue to provide support to help everyone in our Google family heal from this unimaginable tragedy.”
Donald Trump praised “law enforcement officers” that responded to the incident.
He tweeted: “Our thoughts and prayers are with everybody involved.
Last month YouTube announced that it would ban content on the site promoting the sale of guns and gun accessories, as well as content teaching people how to make firearms.
The latest attack follows a series of horrific incidents that have plagued America.
Florida was plunged into fear back in February after a mass shooting took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
17 people were killed and another 17 were wounded, marking one of the deadliest school shootings.
Back in October Stephen Paddock was responsible for killing 58 people in Las Vegas.
Each incident prompted a new outcry from the public for the US to alter its gun laws.
