From police reports, testimony from Aghdam's family members, and extensive traces of the woman's online behavior on YouTube and other platforms, we now know that Aghdam was disgruntled over the demonetizing of her videos and harm to her financial well-being.

San Diego sheriff's Lt. Karen Stubkjaer said Thursday that the father never told deputies that she was a danger to herself or others when he reported her missing.

The most seriously wounded victim, a 36-year-old man initially classified as critically injured, was upgraded to fair condition Thursday.

Reportedly, the San Bruno police had sought a search warrant to investigate the properties around the area where the shooting incident took place that injured four people and also claimed life of gunman.

In the aftermath of the shooting at YouTube's headquarters in San Bruno, California yesterday, the company has announced plans to increase security at all of its offices worldwide. A 32-year-old woman and a 27-year-old woman were both released.

Authorities have promised a deeper investigation into the shooter's past and her anger with the policies of the world's largest online video website, identified as her motive for attacking it.

Police and relatives say Nasim Aghdam (na-SEEM AG-dahm) was angry with YouTube's policies. Aghdam's videos were watched by nine million people, but she found out that getting famous on YouTube doesn't guarantee a big payout.

Many of them were weird such as a clip in which she removes a revealing purple dress to expose fake breasts with the message, "Don't Trust Your Eyes".

Some said they wouldn't have thought she was a violent person because some of her videos on social media promoted animal rights and the vegan diet.
