Police say a woman opened fire at YouTube's offices in San Bruno, Calif., around lunchtime today. She is dead, police say from a self-inflicted wound. Three people were taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds. Sam Harnett of member station KQED has been covering this. He joins us now from outside YouTube's offices. And, Sam, we know that San Bruno police actually gave an update a little while ago. What have they said about what happened?
SAM HARNETT, BYLINE: Well, the update didn't have much more information than what we already know. There's — three victims who are wounded are at the hospital. The suspect, a woman, is dead from a self-inflicted wound. And the police said there won't be any more updates today. Maybe we'll know a little more tomorrow.
CORNISH: When it comes to a possible motive, did they say anything, or did they rule anything out?
HARNETT: No, they — yeah, they've been mum on that as well. There's no indication of a motive.
CORNISH: Now, we mentioned that you were outside YouTube's offices. What have you heard from the eyewitnesses that you spoke to?
HARNETT: Yeah, well, I talked to a couple employees. I mean, everyone, as you can imagine, was kind of shocked. I talked to one employee who said when he heard the gunshots, they were so out of context that he thought it was the sound of a balloon. And then he saw someone on the ground, and he fled. And he said, you know, sadly this is something — it's actually not that shocking to him because he's been hearing so much about all of these incidents. He just — he couldn't believe it finally happened at where he works.
CORNISH: Did people talk about sort of how they were feeling as this unfolded? We've heard from eyewitnesses who talked about the fact that the fire alarm had been pulled, and so people didn't necessarily know what was going on right away.
HARNETT: Yeah, there was a lot of confusion. And, you know, people fled the scene pretty quickly. I mean, there were 1,100 employees there. And, you know, once the police got on scene, everyone was kind of — kind of got out pretty quickly. But again, I think it was just like a feeling of depression and weight, the fact that this has happened yet again, you know? And, you know, for those who were there, they just couldn't believe it had happened.
CORNISH: You said a feeling of depression. What were people saying about this?
HARNETT: Well, yeah, I talked to someone else who had mentioned, you know, that, like, in California there was San Bernardino a couple of years ago where a bunch of people were killed. Just last year there was another incident of workplace violence where a worker opened fire and killed some employees and killed themselves. So, you know, just those incidents are really kind of — they just seem sort of commonplace.
CORNISH: Right now, do we have an — any indication what authorities say their next steps will be?
HARNETT: Yeah, they just sort of — they've finished, like, the tactical phase where they have cleared the building. And now they're moving into the investigative phase. And out of that we should get more details about who the person was that committed the crime and the victims. And I'll say something a lot of people are talking about is the fact that this was a woman. Almost all mass shootings in the U.S. have been perpetrated by men, most of them white. So in this instance, you know, that stands out.
CORNISH: I know people are also asking questions about how the suspect might have been able to get into the building — right? — without an employee pass of some kind.
HARNETT: Right. I mean, like most of these technology campuses, you need a key card to move around. So it would be very difficult or more difficult for someone who's not an employee to get into the building and to move about freely.
CORNISH: Before I let you go, have we heard from YouTube officials or their parent company Google?
HARNETT: Yes. Yeah. YouTube came out and issued a statement. I mean, they basically just thanked law enforcement for coming out. And they talked about how YouTube is a tight-knit community, and that the employees are all kind of — you know, all kind of shocked but kind of coming together.
CORNISH: That's Sam Harnett of KQED. Thank you for speaking with us.
HARNETT: Yeah, thanks, Audie.
警方表示，今天午餐时间，一名女性在加利福尼亚州圣布鲁诺的YouTube总部开枪 。警方称，该女性枪手自杀身亡 。另有3人因枪伤被送往医院治疗 。KQED成员站的山姆·哈尼特一直在报道这起事件 。现在他将从YouTube总部门外和我们连线 。山姆，我们知道圣布鲁诺警方在不久之前公布了这起事件的最新情况 。警方介绍了什么情况？
山姆·哈尼特连线：相比于我们目前已知的情况，警方公布的最新情况没有提供太多新信息 。3名伤者目前正在医院接受治疗 。女性嫌疑人自杀身亡 。警方表示，今天不会公布更多信息了 。也许明天我们能了解更多情况 。
哈尼特：没有，警方一直对动机闭口不谈 。目前也没有证据揭示嫌犯的动机 。
哈尼特：我采访了几名YouTube员工 。你可以想象的到，所有人都感到震惊 。一名员工表示，他听到枪声时，完全不知道发生了什么，他以为那是气球爆炸的声音 。后来他看到有人倒在地上，然后他开始逃离现场 。他说，不幸的是，他认为这起事件并不是那么令人震惊，因为他已经听到了太多类似事件 。他只是不敢相信枪击案会发生在他工作的地方 。
哈尼特：对，有很多令人困惑之处 。人们逃离现场的速度非常快 。当时YouTube总部有1000名员工 。而警察赶到现场时，所有人很快就逃出来了 。我要再说一遍，我认为这令人感到压抑和沉重，因为枪击案又发生了 。那些在现场的人简直不敢相信枪击案真的发生了 。
哈尼特：接受我采访的另一个提到了几年前加州圣布鲁诺发生的那起致多人死亡的事件 。在去年发生的一起职场暴力事件中，一名工作人员开枪杀害了一些职员，随后自杀身亡 。你知道，这些事件看起来很常见 。
哈尼特：有，他们已经清空了事发大楼，战术性阶段已经完成 。现在他们将进入调查阶段 。这个阶段应该掌握枪击案嫌疑人和受害者的详细信息 。现在很多人在谈论的是，这起枪击案的枪手是名女性 。美国发生的所有大规模枪击案几乎都是男性制造的，而且大多数枪手是白人 。而这起枪击案的嫌疑人是女性，这一点尤为引人注目 。
哈尼特：对 。大多数科技园区都需要出入证 。因此，非职员很难进入办公大楼并自由活动 。
哈尼特：有 。YouTube发表了一份声明 。他们在声明中对执法机构的帮忙表示感谢 。他们还提到，Youtube是紧密团结的大家庭，所有员工都处于震惊之中，但是会携手共度难关 。
柯妮什：以上是KQED成员站的山姆·哈尼特带来的报道 。谢谢你和我们连线 。
