Google's CEO said Tuesday that the company would provide support for the victims of a shooting at YouTube headquarters that left three employees injured. 

"I know a lot of you are in shock right now," Sundar Pichai said in a statement. "Over the coming days, we will continue to provide support to help everyone in our Google family heal from this unimaginable tragedy."


His statement came hours after a shooter opened fire on YouTube's San Bruno, Calif., headquarters Tuesday afternoon, putting the campus on lockdown.

The suspected shooter, whom law enforcement identified as a woman, was found dead from what authorities believe was a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

The attack left three employees injured: a 36-year-old man, who was in critical condition; a 32-year-old woman in serious condition; and a 27-year-old woman in fair condition.
