"Our officers made contact with the woman after the license plate of her vehicle matched that of a missing person out of Southern California".
KGO-TV reported the shooter was believed to be a white woman wearing a headscarf and a dark top, but police did not immediately confirm it. Witnesses told KTVU that the suspect shot her boyfriend before killing herself. She mentioned nothing about YouTube at that time.
So officers notified her family and let her go.

"We know that she was upset with YouTube. that's the motivation", San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said as he addressed the media a day after the incident. It lists four YouTube channels for the woman - one in Farsi, one in Turkish, one in English and one devoted to hand art.
The FBI and ATF are also involved in the investigation, and on Wednesday morning, authorities executed search warrants in the Riverside County community of Menifee, where her father lives, and at the San Diego home where relatives say she most recently lived with her grandmother.
The woman's grievances against YouTube appear to be centered around censorship and revenue.
"There is no equal growth opportunity on YOUTUBE or any other video sharing site, your channel will grow if they want to!", Aghdam ranted in a screengrab shared by CNN, in which the 39 year-old San Diego native railed against unnamed dictatorships she claimed put "personal short term profit" over truth, hiding honesty to achieve what she termed nefarious goals, while hinting that YouTube was restricting her ability to post. Next to another video, which also had been blocked Wednesday, she wrote: "This video got age restricted after new close-minded employees, got control of my farsi youtube channel past year 2016 and began filtering my videos to reduce views & suppress & discaurage (sic) me from making videos!"
In others, Nasim Aghdam exercises, promotes animal rights and explains the vegan diet, often in elaborate costumes or carrying a rabbit. But by Tuesday night, the account had been terminated, with a YouTube message citing "multiple or severe violations" of its policy.
The postings are not limited to YouTube. Others include a freakish mix of musical parodies. "They remained calm throughout this second phone call". She exercised, promoted animal rights and explained the vegan diet, often in weird productions with elaborate costumes or carrying a rabbit. She was furious when she started to lose followers and viewers after YouTube changed its filters.
While YouTube is reviewing the incident in detail to increase its security around the world, it is uncertain if Google will be taking the same approach across all of its subsidiaries.
After the shooting, family members told reporters they were not aware she had a gun and surmised it must have been a recent purchase. "We called the cops again and told them there is a reason she went all the way from San Diego to there so she might do something".
"She stated she had come to the area to stay with family and while she was now living out of her vehicle, she was in the process of looking for a job", authorities said in the statement.
Police called Aghdam's father and brother to let them know she'd been found.
"The father confirmed to us that the family had been having issues at home, but did not act in any way concerned about why his daughter had left".
Their concerns grew worse when police told them that her auto was found in Mountain View.
