In this April 3, 2018 image from video provided by the Mountain View Police Department, Nasim Aghdam is questioned by officers after being found asleep in her auto in Mountain View's Walmart parking lot.

Asked 'Why Mountain View?', she claims she wants to sleep there, and get out of her home in San Diego because 'I have memories I don't want to have'.

Officer: "You don't want to hurt yourself, do you? We don't get along together", Aghdam is heard saying on the video, taken about 1:30 a.m. on April 3 in the parking lot at 600 Showers Drive, about 11 hours before the attack on the YouTube campus where three people were injured by gunfire. A routine records check did not reveal any hits or threats of violence.

A second, female, officer arrived and they called the San Diego County Sheriff's Department to confirm the missing person report for Aghdam.

KRON 4 reports that the video shows an officer running towards the property where shots were fired at the headquarters in San Bruno, California.

However, PIO Nelson said that officers did not re-contact Nasim Aghdam. And later, her father explained to reporters that she felt she hadn't been properly compensated by YouTube for her videos on vegan activism. Police found no other official alerts about Aghdam and left her, but they called her father, Ismail Aghdam, to tell him she had been located.

Aghdam: Shakes her head.

The officer in charge asked Aghdam if she was taking any medication or planning to hurt anyone, including herself, and she answered no to both questions, ABC 7 reported.

Aghdam again shook her head to indicate a 'No, ' while seemingly unable to tear her eyes away from her phone screen. The interaction ended about two minutes later. She appears disheveled but is cooperative and calm. She began to complain in the months before the shooting that YouTube was suppressing content and was discriminating against her.

He communicated the interaction with the father and when he understood the two hung up.

The officers were not identified by Mountain View police, and public information officer Katie Nelson said the backup officer who questioned Aghdam had 20 years' experience with the department, ABC 7 reported. An hour later, police say Ismail Aghdam called them back and said that Nasim was upset with YouTube.

"She was essentially a citizen who was asleep in her vehicle, which is not illegal", Mountain View Police Chief Max Bosel explained to KPIX 5.
