The YouTube shooter who injured three before dying of a self-inflicted gunshot wound did not have any drugs or alcohol in her system, an autopsy revealed Monday.

Nasim Najafi Aghdam, 39, open fired on YouTube employees on April 3 and non-fatally injured three with her 9-millimeter pistol before dying of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to her heart and lungs.

“There is an extensive area of destruction of the heart,” the report noted. “Other than the gunshot wound, the heart appears to be non-remarkable,” the report added. There was nothing in the shooter’s system that would indicate she was in an impaired or altered state of mind.

The shooter was visibly upset about some of YouTube’s decisions on her videos, often placing them in restricted or limited state, and took her anger out on it in an assault on the YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California.

Aghdam’s family reported her missing on April 2, the day before the shooting, and the police found her that night before sleeping in her car. Body-cam footage is below.


The family blamed the police for not capitalizing on the chance to stop the shooting, even after having warned the police the morning of the shooting, The Daily Caller reported in April.

“I Googled ‘Mountain View,’ and it was close to YouTube headquarters,” Ismail Aghdam, Nasim’s father, told a local CNN affiliate. “She had a problem with YouTube.”

“She went all the way from San Diego, so she might do something,” Ismail said he warned the police.

The YouTube shooting is another example of authorities failing to prevent shootings when there is ample evidence to prevent it. One prime example of authorities such as the FBI failing to act include the shooting on Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 14 died.

Aghdam, a Middle-Eastern woman, made bizarre videos on YouTube that focused on animal rights and fitness. YouTube would often flag her videos for being inappropriate and removed ads on the videos, damaging a source of her income. (RELATED: YouTube Hits User With Copyright Strike For Uploading His Own Song)

“I am being filtered,” she said in one video explaining YouTube’s restriction. “They age restricted my ab workout video — a video that has nothing bad in it, nothing sensual. Why do that? Because it got famous.”

“This is what they are doing to vegan activists and many others who try to promote healthy, humane, and smart living,” she continued. “People like me are not good for big businesses … that’s why they are discriminating and censoring us.”

Aghdam’s family immigrated from Iran to the U.S. when Nasim was 16, in 1996.
