The Californian teenager who was shot dead while sitting in a cinema was on her first date with a TikTok star who is now brain dead in hospital.
Eighteen-year-old Rylee Goodrich attended a screening of The Horror movie, Forever Purge, at a cinema in Corona alongside her new boyfriend, 19-year-old Anthony Barajas, when they were shot from behind.
The girl’s father, Goodrich, said that Barajas – a TikTok star with more than one million followers – took Rylee to ‘her favourite restaurant’ before they went to the theatre to see the latest instalment in the Purge franchise. And she was texting her mother right up to the point when she was shot.
Later, the police arrested twenty-year-old Joseph Jimenez on Tuesday and he charged with murder, attempted murder and robbery.
A gun of the same calibre as the murder weapon, as well as Rylee’s wallet was discovered at Joseph’s house.
Corona Police Department said that this was an unprovoked attack.
