Several people have been sent to hospital following a shooting at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, Calif., on Tuesday afternoon.

Twitter user @Lavrusik, who identifies as a YouTube employee on his account, said he was evacuated from the building after hearing shots and barricading himself in a room with coworkers.

Lisa Kim, a spokeswoman for Stanford Health Care, said the hospital was receiving between four to five patients from the shooting incident at the YouTube offices.

Google, YouTube's parent company, said in a statement that they are "coordinating with authorities and will provide official information here from Google and YouTube as it becomes available".

"She had a leg injury, a gunshot wound, so I put a tourniquet on her to try to help her", the witness told Sky News.

Multiple patients were taken to San Francisco General Hospital, KTVU reported.

Three victims from the shooting have been confirmed, with one in critical condition and another in serious condition, according to CBS News.

Television news footage showed people leaving the building in a line, holding their arms in the air for police to inspect as they were leaving the building.




San Bruno City Manager Connie Jackson told NBC Bay Area that there is no immediate danger to the public.

One YouTube employee tweeted, "Active shooter at YouTube HQ".

"It was very chaotic as you can imagine", San Bruno Police Department Chief Ed Barberini told reporters during a press conference at the scene.

"My stomach sinks with yet another active shooter alert", the Democrat tweeted.

The YouTube offices are located on the same suburban campus as Google.

"Was just briefed on the shooting at YouTube's headquarters in San Bruno, California", President Donald Trump tweeted. "The fire alarm went off so we started to evacuate and then people (started) running saying there was a shooter".

ATF officials said it will be responding to Tuesday's incident.
