Senior Deputy City Attorney Leslie Jensen cited an exception for records of ongoing law enforcement investigations but provided no explanation.

The relatives last saw Aghdam - who lived with her grandmother in San Diego - on March 31, reported her missing Monday and filed an "at-risk" report with the San Diego County Sheriff's Office.

Dramatic scenes unfolded yesterday as it emerged a woman had opened fire at YouTube's headquarters in California.

As officers entered they found one victim at the front of the building with an apparent gunshot wound, Jackson said.

Police identified the woman in Tuesday's shooting as San Diego resident Nasim Najafi Aghdam, who was in her late 30s.

On Jan. 28, Aghdam recorded a video of herself lamenting her perceived "discrimination" by YouTube, particularly railing on how YouTube determined her ab workout video was too racy and, therefore, filtered it. One spent magazine was found at the scene, along with the gun and the second loaded magazine, he said.

Before opening fire in the building, Aghdam visited a gun range, which definitely foreshadowed her intentions for the rest of the afternoon.

U.S. and North Korea 'holding secret talks' ahead of meeting
Analysts said the efforts show that the U.S. intelligence agencies are taking the lead for summit preparations. CNN reports that Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, is also being considered as a potential meeting place.

"At the time I didn't know she had these extreme, quite frankly psychotic stances". The shooter wounded three people before turning the handgun on herself.

Her father, Ismail Aghdam, brought his family to the United States from Iran in 1996.

Regarding the situation, Google Communications tweeted that they were "coordinating with authorities and will provide official information here from Google and YouTube as it becomes available". "There was nothing in her behavior that suggested anything unusual", Mountain View Police Chief Max Bosel said about the 20-minute chat between his officers and the woman after they found her asleep in her vehicle in a Walmart lot. The third victim, a 36-year-old man, was upgraded from critical to serious condition.

Two other women, aged 32 and 27 were also taken to hospital. Both women have since been released from a hospital, officials said.

Nasim Najagi Aghdam, the deceased Iranian-born woman who vlogged about living in the world that's rife with "injustice and diseases", was identified by California police as the one behind the incident, according to The Guardian.

She then fatally shot herself. State TV briefly reported the shooting based on global reports.

The suspect's father, Ismail Aghdam, told the Bay Area News Group he warned police the day before the attack that his daughter was upset with how YouTube handled her videos and might be planning to go to its offices.

Twins Season Home Opener Festivities Equal Game Winner
For their home opener, the Minnesota Twins brought a bald eagle to soar around the stadium as part of the pre-game festivities. It started well enough; the eagle took off majestically from its handler's arm and then sort of circled Paxton in the outfield.

Investigators will likely scrutinize Aghdam's movements during the almost nine-hour drive from her family's home near San Diego to YouTube's headquarters and will examine the freakish videos she posted online and the posts about her, as well as look for any messages she may have sent to company officials.

The family says she felt she reached the most people through her Youtube page - but her relationship with the company turned ugly when Youtube changed its filters, and she began to lose followers and viewers.

YouTube had no immediate comment about any actions related to Aghdam's videos.

In a recording of a 911 call posted online by the Los Angeles Times, a dispatcher can be heard saying: "Shooter".

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

From the self-made exercise videos that bordered between kitsch and creepy to the outspoken vegan and animal-rights activism, the artist and self-described "first ever" Persian female bodybuilder earned a measure of fame and curiosity in the YouTube universe from the Inland Empire to Iran.
