San Bruno police confirmed they responded to an active shooter at YouTube Tuesday afternoon.

A law enforcement source told ABC News the shooter was a white adult female.

After searching the building, a female suspected to be the shooter was located with what's believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Product manager at the company, Vadim Lavrusik, tweeted saying he "heard shots".

San Francisco General Hospital spokesman Brent Andrew told KPIX the hospital received patients from the incident but could not confirm a number.

One victim was found with an apparent gunshot wound in front of the building.

Google, who purchased YouTube in November 2006 in a stock deal that was worth about $1.65 billion, tweeted that it is coordinating with authorities. The 36-year-old male is in critical condition while one woman is in serious condition and the other is in fair condition.

Police say they're still interviewing those employees and have set up several staging areas around the campus for evacuated workers.

Police in San Bruno warned people in a Twitter message to stay away from the address where YouTube, owned by Alphabet Inc's Google (GOOGL.O), is based. Dozens of employees were being frisked by officers as they lined up after evacuating the building.

"My stomach sinks with yet another active shooter alert", the Democrat tweeted.

"Was just briefed on the shooting at YouTube's headquarters in San Bruno, California", President Donald Trump tweeted.

Stanford Hospital says it has received patients from a shooting at YouTube headquarters, according to the Associated Press.

ATF officials said it will be responding to Tuesday's incident.
