“I think it was rapid fire. I mean it was one after another, ‘boom boom boom boom boom,’ one woman told KTVU news. Then, she said, “I heard it get more quiet like he was going away.”
The shooting comes as YouTube plans this month to modify its policy on gun sales. The popular video site announced it would ban content that promotes the sale of guns and accessories like bump stocks, which modify guns to fire rapidly. YouTube announced the new guidelines just days before last month’s March for Our Lives gun-control rallies.
The change sparked criticism from gun rights groups, like the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a firearms industry trade group, which called the new policies “troubling” and “worrisome.”
