YouTube mass shooter Nasim Aghdam has a much different profile than most mass shooters.

"Her father called us back to let us know that she made a series of vegan videos for her channel on YouTube, and that the company had recently done something to her videos that had caused her to become upset", Mountain View Police said.

As he distributed copies of the statement, Aghdam told reporters he still can't believe what transpired Tuesday, saying his daughter never "hurt one animal, one ant".

"At this time there is no evidence that the shooter knew the victims of this shooting or that individuals were specifically targeted", San Bruno police said.

But her brother said he expressed additional concern upon learning she was discovered by police so close to the YouTube campus. They say they had not been able to contact her since Saturday.

Police in the San Francisco Bay Area city of Mountain View said they spoke to Ismail Aghdam twice after contacting the family to report finding his daughter sleeping in her auto early wednesday.

Last week, Aghdam's family reported her missing from her home in San Diego. "I didn't know she had a gun I thought she'd start a fight or something", said her brother.

The 21-year-old Melbourne-born Rookie of the Year favourite said he was chasing James' mantle as the best player in the world. Embiid was at the game for the first time since he suffered a concussion and needed surgery to fix a fractured orbital bone.

Aghdam was found dead at the scene with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to police.

In videos and written posts on a website that appeared to be hers, she said that YouTube was discriminating against her and filtering her videos to keep them from getting views.

"Our family is in absolute shock and can't makes sense of what happened".

Police have previously said Aghdam went to a gun range before arriving at YouTube.

Fauria Aghdam broke down in tears during the interview, as Thursday would have been Nasim's 39th birthday.

The family says may it have something to do with the timing of the shooting. YouTube had no immediate comment about any actions related to Nasim Aghdam's videos, spokesman Chris Dale said. "Whether that rises to the level of terrorism hopefully will be determined in the next couple weeks".

Upset family members said police did not heed their warnings that Nasim Aghdam was in the Bay Area likely because of her anger at the internet video-sharing giant.

Facebook admits to deleting messages from Zuckerberg and other executives
All third-party apps using the Groups API will now need approval from Facebook and an admin to ensure they benefit the group. Facebook, facing enormous pressure over the scandal, said Friday it had suspended AggregateIQ pending further investigation.

Mountain View police objected to that characterization and in a statement Wednesday detailed their exchange with Aghdam's family.

Two women wounded in the shooting were released Wednesday from a San Francisco hospital. Police visited the range Wednesday.

In addition to restricting her postings on animal mistreatment, she said, YouTube had blocked others. Channels believed to be linked to her were published in English, Farsi and Turkish, and each had several thousand subscribers; all were taken down by late Tuesday.

A 36-year-old man and two women, ages 32 and 27, are expected to recover from their wounds. She was situated in a parking lot that was roughly 30 miles away from YouTube's building, though Aghdam kept a "calm and cooperative" demeanor during her conversation with police.

A website in that name criticised YouTube's policies and said the company was trying to "suppress" content creators. The company said they will be "revisiting this incident in detail and will be increasing the security we have at all of our offices worldwide to make them more secure".

Senior Deputy City Attorney Leslie Jensen cited an exception for records of ongoing law enforcement investigations but provided no explanation. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the case.
