WASHINGTON (Circa) -- Four people have been injured in a shooting at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California, according to San Bruno police.

San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said the four victims include a deceased woman San Bruno police believe to be the shooter.

The suspect appears to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Barberini said.

Law enforcement sources tell The Associated Press the shooting is being investigated as a domestic dispute.

San Francisco General Hospital said they are currently treating three patients, a 36-year-old male in critical condition and two females. One female is in serious condition and the other is in fair conditions.

Vadim Lavruski, who works at YouTube in the product department, says he "heard shots and saw people running while at my desk."

City Manager Connie Jackson says there have been multiple 911 calls reporting a shooting and that police and fire officials have responded.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) San Fransisco offices are also responding to the scene.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that President Trump has been briefed and is monitoring the situation.

Google says in a statement that they are working with law enforcement and that employees should shelter in place until further notice.

Lisa Kim, a representative with Stanford Health Care said they are "treating 4-5 patients from the shooting. No word on their conditions."

Todd Sherman, product manager at Google, tweeted what happened in real-time saying as he headed towards the exits he "saw blood drips on the floor and stairs." Sherman also says he witnessed "police cruisers pull up, hopped out with rifles ready."

Will Hudson said his friend who works for YouTube texted him about the shooter, according to a report by the Associated Press.

"I think there might be a shooter in my building," read one text."The fire alarm went off so we started to evacuate and then people (started) running saying there was a shooter."

Hudson said his friend has made it safely back to San Francisco and is in contact with his family, Hudson said in the report. Hudson said he's become accustomed to hearing about such violence but has never been so close to it before.

"It just feels strange. It feels like it could really be anyone. That's really the strangeness of it," he said, in an interview with the Associated Press..
