WATCH: YouTube shooter "hated" the company
The father of a woman suspected of shooting three people at YouTube’s headquarters says she was angry at the company because it stopped paying her for videos she posted on the platform.
Ismail Aghdam told the Bay Area News Group that he warned police his daughter, Nasim Aghdam, might be going to YouTube because she "hated" the company.
Ismail Aghdam said he reported his daughter missing on Monday after she did not answer her phone for two days.
He said the family received a call from Mountain View police around 2 a.m. Tuesday telling they found Nasim sleeping in a car and he warned them she might go to YouTube.
Mountain View Police spokeswoman Katie Nelson confirmed officers located a woman by the same name asleep in a vehicle asleep in a Mountain View parking lot Tuesday morning.
She says the woman declined to answer further questions. Nelson did not respond to a question about whether police were warned Aghdam might go to YouTube.
Three people were shot in the attack and hour after suggesting the shooting may have been some kind of domestic dispute, police said were not specifically targeted.
Of the victims, one was taken to hospital in critical condition.
San Bruno police said in a statement that 39-year-old Nasim Najafi Aghdam did not know the victims when she opened fire Tuesday afternoon before she killed herself.
A law enforcement official said investigators believe Aghdam used the name Nasime Sabz online and had a long-running dispute with YouTube.
A website in that name decried YouTube’s policies and said that YouTube was trying to "suppress" content creators.
As you can see in one of Aghdam's videos, her content was a little strange:
