Brother of disgruntled YouTube attacker warned authorities prior to violent outburst

The brother of a woman who opened fire at YouTube headquarters on Tuesday afternoon said he warned authorities prior to the attack. He said he was worried she might do something dangerous after she became angry with the video platform for allegedly demonetizing her videos and deeming them inappropriate for certain ages.

Here's what he said: 

According to Fox 5 Vegas, the brother of the attacker said she stopped answering her phone over the weekend. The brother told authorities she had driven all the way from San Diego to Mountain View, California, where YouTube headquarters are located.

"I Googled 'Mountain View,' and it was close to YouTube headquarters. And she had a problem with YouTube,"  he told CNN affiliate KGTV. That's when he said he called the police to say "she might do something."

How many people were injured?

According to reports, three YouTube employees were injured at the San Bruno campus. The attacker then shot herself with a 9mm handgun.

Police acknowledged the warnings but are investigating why nothing was done to prevent this.
