"Although no words can describe our deep pain for this tragedy, our family would like to express their utmost regret, sorrow for what has happened to innocent victims", the statement read.
Ismail said his daughter was a vegan activist and animal lover who would not even kill ants that invaded the family home when she was a youngster. "We are praying for speedy recovery of the injured and ask God to bestow patience upon all persons hurt in this horrific, senseless act".
Mountain View police told the family at 2 a.m. Tuesday that everything was "under control" after they found the disgruntled woman sleeping in a parking lot about 39 miles from the YouTube site. Police Wednesday said they had heard the same information but that it had not been substantiated.
Aghdam was reportedly "angry" at YouTube after the company had "discriminated and filtered" her content. According to the police, their officers had looked up and talked to her family after finding her sleeping in her vehicle.
In addition to clips in which she called herself a "ninja", and one in which the Los Angeles Times reported that she said in Farsi that she had no "specific physical or mental illness", but rather lived in a planet "that is filled with illness, and disorder and perversion and injustice", Aghdam posted videos in which she danced, offered vegan recipes, did parodies of popular TV shows and movies and provided exercise tips, as well as the occasional music video.

For the first time, the parents of Nasim Aghdam are speaking out about the shooting allegedly committed by their daughter at YouTube's headquarters earlier this week. "And she had a problem with YouTube", he told the ABC affiliate. Authorities said she legally owned the 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun.
He said he warned police that "she went all the way from San Diego, so she might do something". He said he didn't know his sister had a gun on her but did feel that she was going to the headquarters to possibly "start a fight".
She told Vegan Idea World: "From a very young age I used to care about the animals and their welfare, and think about the source of meat and where it came from and I knew that the fried chicken on my dinner plate once was a attractive yellow chick".
Her channel had more than 5,000 subscribers. "I think he was a good father, and it just happens when you have kids sometimes", Rundell said. "We have full confidence in the investigative efforts of the San Bruno Police Department and their colleagues as they tackle this case".
But when she perceived the company had robbed her of her voice - cutting off many of her viewers by censoring her videos - the eccentric YouTuber turned from defiant to deadly.
NYPD Releases 911 Transcripts, Video in Fatal Shooting of Man
A Black man walked down a Brooklyn street on the evening of April 4, allegedly pointing a silver metal object at people. In response, officers shot that man - identified as Saheed Vassell - because they believed the metal object was a gun.
As questions remain on the motive, police have said there's no evidence the shooter knew the victims or that they were specifically targeted. "Throughout our entire interaction with her, she was calm and cooperative... she in no way met any reason for us to speak with her further or possibly detain her". "At no point during that conversation did either Aghdam's father or brother make any statements regarding the woman's potential threat to, or a possible attack on, the YouTube campus". The same day, Aghdam visited a gun range and later opened fire into a courtyard at the video-sharing platform's campus in San Bruno.
Two women wounded in the shooting were released on Wednesday from a San Francisco hospital. In one post she says: "Internet crackdown and filtering is increasing in the West".
