YouTube shooter Nasim Aghdam used a 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun that was registered to her to carry out her rampage at the video site’s HQ on Tuesday after visiting a gun range earlier in the morning to practice.

Police revealed the new information on Wednesday morning as they confirmed that Aghdam did not know any of the three people she wounded but was angry over a change in YouTube policies which meant she no longer earned money from her bizarre content.

They also revealed that she snuck onto YouTube’s 200,000 sq ft ‘campus’ through a parking garage but that she parked her own vehicle behind another business nearby.

She had been reported missing by family members on April 2 and was last seen by them on March 31.

Early on Tuesday, police in Mountain View, a Silicon Valley hub around 30 miles from YouTube’s HQ, found her sleeping in her car. They clearly did not consider her a risk despite her father telling them she was angry at YouTube when she left her home 500 miles away days earlier.

After finding her in her car, police removed Aghdam from the missing person’s database and she was free to go on to the gun range and then to the YouTube campus where she opened fire at 12.46pm.

She shot herself dead after injuring three people whose conditions remain unknown.

Earlier, the woman’s family in Manifee, California, revealed that they came to the US from Iran in 1996 and that she believed there was less free speech in America than in the Middle East.

Until recently, Aghdam had been making a living through monetized commercials and posts on YouTube where she had gathered thousands of followers through multiple English and Farsi channels.
