Yet you're absolutely right it's still a crimes in your arms misstep by the way and that viewers kind of get a peek of what's going on here just behind me here. This is the YouTube campus that owning ratepayers one of the main entrances 901 here we're all this went down we're learning more data about miss odd common kind of the way that she viewed YouTube. We understand from the chief police did she was unhappy with their procedures in their policies. But it's also interesting because she used the platform to. Push her own views her own message should get about 5000 viewers are so when. Point she talked about. Rebuttal of animals about eating V in the by the number of different things and she felt. That again YouTube was again restricting growth with a bit so. We're doing a little walk and talk right now I'm gonna kind of point out again exactly where we are YouTube. To my right right here a business interests are kind of a strip mall to my left straight years we're getting firsthand accounts from people that were here yesterday that. Essentially tell us when all this went down when shots rang out number people were able to get out of the building. Many of them ran this way we were hearing that one particular woman who had gunshot through word leg. Ran into Carlos junior there was some gentlemen there word just eating lunch in. You know rose the UK's in is as did other folks in there and try to care for her as best they could they called mama one. Others continued to run we talked a business owner a little bit further down who. Said a couple people came in one woman had a a bullet lodged in her shoe. Another person had blood all over their face. I'm we're gonna continue to walk up here because this back area is a real point of of interest because. This is where we believe we're police believe. All of this this shooting went down. We're going to again just continue to walk here so bear with me a little bit things are pretty quiet around here today YouTube. Told their employees to stay home to work from home today yesterday was it was kind of eerie when me guys you're used to employees. Just kind of wandering around walking down the street many of them with no belongs in the sell for in their hand colors. Just had just had a laptop underneath their own known ahead. This look of disbelief on their stories. You're in you really got a sense of of the the panic the few year. Kind of the raw emotions of the event when you've looked at them you know.
