SAN BRUNO, Calif. — Video captured from a bystander that shows an officer’s response to the shooting at YouTube’s headquarters has gone viral.

KRON 4 reports that the video shows an officer running towards the property where shots were fired at the headquarters in San Bruno, California. The LEO is being credited for his bravery of running toward danger in an attempt to stop the shooting.

On April 3, police said Nasim Aghdam came to the company’s property and opened fire, wounding three people before dying by suicide.

Police have not identified the officer in the video. Most PDs in California are trained to go straight to the threat instead of waiting for backup to arrive.
