She was found in her car early the next morning in Mountain View and told officers she had left home following an argument with family members.  Aghdam visited a gun range in South San Francisco later that morning before police say she opened fire at YouTube's headquarters early that afternoon, injuring three people, before taking her own life.

Aghdam is believed to have been upset about YouTube's business practices, and compensation from her YouTube channel.
