Bodycam video shows interaction with YouTube shooter hours before she opened fire

Mountain View police said they waited to release the video so that San Bruno police, who are the lead agency in the YouTube shooting, could view it first. YouTube shooting suspect Nasim Aghdam's parents give tearful reflection that she could "never hurt one ant " Aghdam tells the officer she has no plans on going home.

The officers later ask - "You don't want to hurt yourself, do you?" Only after more information was received and a backup officer arrived did the officer approach the vehicle and make contact with Aghdam.

Bayern face Real in Champions League semis
It's not enough for Bayern to simply win the league, or even the double or the treble - it has to be done in a certain style, too. Champions League qualification is possible this season after another stellar campaign.

Mountain View police discovered Aghdam sleeping in her vehicle while checking for stolen cars in a superstore parking lot where they are frequently left, ABC 7 reported. She wakes up and appears somewhat disoriented, telling them she left her family in San Diego because we're not getting along. Eleven hours later on April 3, police in San Bruno said the 39-year-old was the person who shot employees at YouTube headquarters about 25 miles away. She told officers she was having "issues" with her family. "You don't want to commit suicide or anything like that?" the female officer asks her. "We don't get along together", Aghdam is heard saying on the video, taken about 1:30 a.m. on April 3 in the parking lot at 600 Showers Drive, about 11 hours before the attack on the YouTube campus where three people were injured by gunfire.

When asked had she just chose to move - Aghdam said: "Yeah, right now I'm just trying to find work to ..." She opened fire later that day and then killed herself.

Mountain View, Calif. police released the police body camera footage Friday afternoon, along with the dispatch radio traffic associated with the case. Aghdam was sleeping inside and a check of her records did not reveal any instances or threats of violence.

Trump says Syria strike was 'perfectly executed'
Macron said the attack was "limited to the Syrian regime's facilities enabling the production and employment of chemical weapons". The UK asserts that the action is not about interfering in a civil war or about regime change.

A woman claims YouTube "discriminated and filtered" her content in a video posted in 2017. The officers checked several databases, including a statewide database that would indicate if someone is a registered gun owner but prohibited to possess firearms, police said.

The father reportedly thanked the officer for the call and hung up.

About an hour later, police said, the father, Ismail Aghdam, called the officer back and told him his daughter had become upset about YouTube changes that had impacted her videos about living a vegan lifestyle. The father suggested that may have been one of the reasons she was in the area.

Palestinian journalists fear being targeted during protests

Aghdam's family immigrated to the United States in 1996, and her father told the Bay Area News Group that his daughter had shown no previous signs of being inclined to violence.
