YouTube Couple Hides in Closet After Armed Fan Breaks Into House

"Threatening thoughts were recorded by Giles and directed toward Gavin Free, i.e., "I want Gavin Free to die alone, with no children, '" the court documents read".

According to that search warrant affidavit, around 3:40 a.m. on January 26, Turney and Free awoke to the sound of breaking glass and a gunshot. Giles died at the scene, and although the Albuquerque search warrant says his injury may have been self-inflicted, an official ruling has not been made. Giles fired at police, and an officer fired back, interim Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said.

According to a police report, the "single, lonely and disturbed" man from neighbouring New Mexico drove 11 hours to reach the couple's home.

A "disturbed fan" armed with a gun entered the home of a celebrity YouTube couple before firing at least one shot, police said.

Police determined "it was apparent that Giles' sole intent was to cause harm to someone who resides there", KVUE reported.

Rumour: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is this year's CoD game
Activision typically announces new Call of Duty games in April, so we probably have a few months before we'll get all the answers. He noted that the new game will be released for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One , and somewhat surprisingly, the Nintendo Switch.

Free and Turney did not immediately respond to requests for comment, but both tweeted about the incident this week. Free and another YouTuber run the channel The Slow Mo Guys, which has more than 10 million followers. He opened fire on the cops, who shot him dead. It seems like he envied Free's aspirational lifestyle and his romantic relationship with Turney.

Police searched Giles' phone, where they found multiple notes in which he talks about Turney and Free by name. According to the police, it was these videos that led a man from Albuquerque, NM to resent Free and subsequently drive to Austin to confront the couple. They also said nothing had been stolen from the property. An affidavit obtained by the Albuquerque Journal described Giles as "an avid player of video games and was known for watching YouTube videos that were centered on his hobby".

Meanwhile, fellow YouTubers and fans expressed their love and support for the Internet personalities following the scary incident online.

"Thank y'all so, so much for each and every kind message today and a special thank you to the Austin Police for their quick response that night and their ongoing support during this hard time". "It's been a rough time for Meg and myself the last few weeks but we are doing ok".
