Hospital officials confirmed to local television they have received multiple patients from the site of the shooting.
According to Fox News, the San Bruno Police Department was responding to at least 50 phone calls to 911 reporting rapid gunfire on the YouTube campus.
“Todd Sherman, who identified himself as a Product Manager at YouTube, claimed on Twitter that he was in a meeting at the building when they heard people running. He said he and others made their way to the exit and at one point when he ‘looked down’ he ‘saw blood drips on the floor and stairs.’ He said he saw authorities on the scene and added that he was now on his way home,” writes Fox.
BETTE GOES BERSERK: Midler Says ‘F*** YOU’ to GOP Following Deadly SCHOOL SHOOTING
Famed musician and actress Bette Midler went berserk on GOP lawmakers and Mitch McConnell in particular Thursday afternoon; slamming the Republican leader after he offered “the prayers of the whole Senate” to those injured in Wednesday’s school shooting in Florida.
The A-list celebrity lashed-out at McConnell on twitter for his heartwarming comments, saying “F*** you & your worthless thoughts and prayers,” after accusing the GOP leadership of putting campaign donations over the lives of American students.
“F*** you & your worthless thoughts and prayers; you & your obfuscating shills got what you wanted, $$$, while our kids get to die in school,” she posted.
Midler was responding to a tweet from the Senate Majority Leader earlier in the day.
“Schools should be places where children can learn, and faculty and staff can work, without fear of violence. My colleagues from Florida will carry home the prayers of the whole Senate, for victims and their families, for the community of Parkland, and for the first responders,” he wrote.
FBI FALLOUT: Florida Governor Says FBI Director ‘NEEDS TO RESIGN’ Following School Shooting
Florida Governor Rick Scott is calling on FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign following the bureau’s admission that they failed to “follow procedures” after receiving a tip that gunman Nikolas Cruz was poised to launch his deadly school shooting.
The tip -which informed the agency that Cruz was likely to attempt a mass shooting in the coming weeks- went largely ignored by the bureau; similar to other information received by the FBI about the suspect’s disturbing posts on social media.
“The FBI’s failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable,” Scott said in a statement. “The FBI has admitted that they were contacted last month by a person who called to inform them of Cruz’s ‘desire to kill people,’ and ‘the potential of him conducting a school shooting,’” said Scott.
“Seventeen innocent people are dead and acknowledging a mistake isn’t going to cut it. An apology will never bring these 17 Floridians back to life or comfort the families who are in pain. The families will spend a lifetime wondering how this could happen, and an apology will never give them the answers they desperately need […] The FBI director needs to resign,” he added.
