Reports indicate that a body was found inside Apple’s Cupertino campus early Wednesday morning and the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s office is investigating. TMZ has obtained police audio of part of the incident which can be heard below.
…at Apple campus Infinite Loop, for a 1056 attempt… female employee bleeding with a head wound to the head… possibly has a gun. Her… looks like security was escorting the employee down and the Westside units are just now arriving… I do have further… they are advising that there’s a body in one of the conference rooms with a gun so we’re not really sure if there’s multiple people involved.
Police code 10-56 is sometimes used to refer to a suicide, this is not the case for all departments but most departments use the same codes across the country. TMZ is also reporting indications of a female employee having a head wound and an argument ensuing.
Santa Clara Co Sheriff spokeswoman can’t confirm death at this point but is headed to Apple & expects to have more info to release later.

According to the sheriff’s dispatch call there was a female employee involved in an argument on the campus, and had sustained a head wound — possibly from a gun — before Apple security escorted her out of the building. As deputies were responding, they were unclear if there were multiple people involved. At one point cops describe a body being found in a conference room, and say that person had a gun. It’s increasingly looking like there were 2 people involved since the fatality was reportedly an Hispanic male … and we know the person with the head wound was a woman.
Right now no one has the full details and we will try and keep this post updated if we hear anything else in the next few hours. We’ve also reached out to Apple for comment. This type of news is never good to hear no matter what side of the tech fence you side on.
