Store worker says YouTube shooter gun buy did not stand out
SAN DIEGO (AP) — An employee at a San Diego gun store where a woman bought the pistol used to shoot three people at YouTube headquarters said there was nothing remarkable about the transaction.
Manny Mendoza, rangemaster at The Gun Range, told the Bay Area News Group that Nasim Aghdam did not stand out as unusual.
Authorities say that Aghdam was angry about the policies and practices of the company and carried out an attack Tuesday at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, south of San Francisco. She then fatally shot herself.
Mendoza says he did not know if Aghdam purchased ammunition or accessories.
The news group reports that the gun store advertised a “12 Guns of Christmas” sale in October for the model purchased by Aghdam. The pistols retailed for $399.99.
