SAN BRUNO, Calif.  (1010 WINS/AP) --  A spokeswoman for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says agents are searching Southern California homes where the YouTube shooter had lived.
 
Spokeswoman Ginger Colbrun would not confirm the locations but reporters on Wednesday saw agents entering homes in the communities of Menifee and 4S Ranch. 
 
Menifee is about 80 miles southeast of Los Angeles and 4S Ranch is about 25 miles north of San Diego.
 
Police in the city of San Bruno where the shooting happened have said they requested the searches.
 
Nasim Aghdam shot and wounded three people at YouTube headquarters on Tuesday before she killed herself, police said. She used a handgun in the attack.

Aghdam's father says she was angry at the company because it stopped paying her for videos she posted on the platform. 
 
Ismail Aghdam told the Bay Area News Group that he warned police his daughter might be going to YouTube because she "hated'' the company.
 
Ismail Aghdam said he reported his daughter missing on Monday after she did not answer her phone for two days. 
 
He said the family received a call from Mountain View police around 2 a.m. Tuesday telling they found Nasim sleeping in a car and he warned them she might go to YouTube. 
 
Mountain View Police spokeswoman Katie Nelson confirmed officers located a woman by the same name asleep in a vehicle asleep in a Mountain View parking lot Tuesday morning.
