- Mountain View police on Friday released a combined 30 minutes of body camera video and dispatch radio of the early-morning interaction in a parking lot with YouTube shooter Nasim Aghdam, revealing that the 38-year-old woman was angry with her family and that left her hometown to start fresh.

Mountain View Police said the license plate showed Aghdam's vehicle was linked to a San Diego missing persons report filed by her family.

Just hours before, Aghdam had been stopped by police in Mountain View. Asked if she wanted to hurt herself or anybody else - or commit suicide, Aghdam responded: "No". She tells them she has no intention of hurting herself or others.

Police said Aghdam's father did not indicate that she was a danger to herself or anyone else and did not bring up any concerns about her behaviour.

The officers notified her of the missing persons report and she told them she had left her family after she was not getting along with them.

A few hours later, Aghdam went to a gun range where she practiced shooting.

She posted videos under the online name Nasime Sabz, and a website in that name decried YouTube's policies, saying the company was trying to "suppress" content creators.

Newly released police video shows officers talking to a woman in her auto hours before she opened fire at YouTube's California headquarters.

In a statement, Mountain View Police Chief Max Bosel said that his officers followed proper protocol.

He communicated the interaction with the father and when he understood the two hung up. He thanked them but later called to say that Aghdam was upset about YouTube and may have been in the area for that reason. "So I called that cop again and told him there's a reason she went all the way from San Diego to there, so she might do something". "The tragedy of the incident at YouTube weighs heavily on our hearts but we support and stand by the actions taken by our officers in their contact with Ms. Aghdam".

The Queensland fitness influencer claims the words used in the video had defamatory imputations about her not honouring a contractual obligation, News Corp reported.

Aghdam continued to discuss her family situation as she tried to find her ID.

The YouTube shooting case is being investigated by San Bruno Police.
