Aghdam died by a self-inflicted gunshot wound after shooting three people, one of whom is in critical condition. A fourth victim injured their ankle while fleeing the scene at the San Bruno office. On her website, Aghdam accused YouTube of "filtering" her videos to prevent them from getting views and embedded a video from prominent YouTube star Casey Neistat complaining about YouTube's demonetization policy, known as the adpocalypse. "I'm being discriminated and filtered on YouTube, and I'm not the only one," she said in a video republished by NBC. This is because I'm getting filtered." Her Dailymotion page is still online.

"We know very, very little right now, and we probably won't know more until tomorrow morning," San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini told reporters during a press conference prior to her identity being revealed.
