Police release body cam video of YouTube shooter hours before attack

In the early morning hours before she went on a shooting rampage at YouTube headquarters, Nasim Aghdam was awakened by Mountain View police as she slept in the front seat of her vehicle in a Walmart parking lot.

The video, however, shows a calm and collected Nasim Aghdam as officers asked her why her family in San Diego had reported her as an at risk missing person.

Her family members, who live in Menifee in Riverside County, have said that they did get that early-morning call from police, but called them back to say that they thought Aghdam might be in the Bay Area because she had been angry with YouTube over its policies.

Officers questioned Aghdam, who was found sleeping in her 2006 Pontiac in a parking lot on the 600 block of Showers Drive, and asked her if she wanted to hurt herself or others.

A body cam video of the exchange between Aghdam and the two officers who were on a routine patrol was released by the police on Friday.

Later that day, she went to a gun range before walking through a parking garage into a courtyard at YouTube's campus south of San Francisco, where she opened fire with a handgun and wounded three people. The dispatch center reported back to the officers that Aghdam was reported "at risk" when the missing person's report was filed was because she had no prior reports of having gone missing. She says she drove straight Mountain View from San Diego because she was looking to start a new life. Nasim Aghdam: "No." Officer: "Are you supposed to take medication?"

Kidnapped journalists are dead, Ecuador's president says
The journalists were abducted by rogue forces of Colombia's FARC guerrillas along the countries' shared border on March 26. The government Thursday received photos Thursday from the Colombian TV station RCN suggesting the three had been killed.

In the video released in response to public records requests from media organizations including the Daily Post and Associated Press, Aghdam is seen being awakened by officers.

As such, our officers are constantly cognizant of this dynamic and in this context, look to strike the balance between investigative police work and maintaining the civil liberties of those that they contact.

The cop continued, asking: 'And you don't want to hurt anybody else?'

He communicated the interaction with the father and when he understood the two hung up.

"A review of the incident revealed that our officers followed proper procedure and protocol". "There was no dispute or anything", the San Diego dispatcher told the Mountain View officer. "At no point in either of our conversations did the family bring up any concerns about their daughter's behavior, any potential violence she may carry out, or any likelihood that she could be a danger to herself or others", police said in a statement. He thanked them but later called to say that Aghdam was upset about YouTube and may have been in the area for that reason.
