One YouTube employee recounted the terrifying incident in an interview with CNN:
One YouTube employee said people were trying to get out of the building “as fast as they could.”
She said she was on a conference call and her boss, who heard shots, told her at least one person was shot on the patio where people eat.
“We were all suddenly aware of a lot of noises, of sounds, people running outside of the room where she was. And people screaming,” said the employee, who was in a building down the street.
Another YouTube employee, Todd Sherman, recalled the moments after the shooting started.
“We headed towards the exit and then saw more people and someone said that there was a person with a gun. Shit,” he tweeted. At that point every new person I saw was a potential shooter. Someone else said that the person shot out the back doors and then shot themselves.”
He continued, “I looked down and saw blood drips on the floor and stairs. Peaked around for threats and then we headed downstairs and out the front.”
