20-year-old man killed while shooting ’prank’ video for YouTube

On Friday, Timothy Wilks, 20, along with a friend stepped to Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park, to shoot a prank robbery video for YouTube. With a butcher knife in hand, they approached a group of people which included David Starnes Jr, 23, who was unaware of the prank. In an act of defense, Starnes shot Wilks. Although an investigation has begun, no one has been charged with Wilk’s death.

Play a stüpid game, win a stüpid prize. It is sad that sometime lost their life, but what were you expecting when you approached a stranger while wielding a butcher knife at 9pm in a parking lot in a state with concealed carry? Also if the victim/prankster was black the legacy media would absolutely spin this into a racist hate crime, no joke.

I always carry and would have shot him also. It's sad, but you can't do stupid sh!t like that to a stranger.

What a fucking idiot. Take this as a lesson to not do anything for clout. It's sad he died so young, but remember that to never do things like these. This prank of his was a stupid idea from the start.

Considering criminals often record their crimes to show their friends, I wonder if this was retconned into a 'prank' after he got shot.

Kids these days didn’t grow up with shows like Jackass, so they don’t know what a good prank is.

Prank my arse. Those kids were out to film a crime, paid the price, and now the story needs to evolve asap so no one needs to take responsibility.. Just charge the survivor with wreckless endangerment and manslaughter. The shooter should be touted as a hero.

Holy crap. I have worked on this property. I own a contractor company and we were brought in to remove some of the posts in the building because it was a former grocery store. My kids were there recently playing. It's actually a really fun place and the staff is great. Terrible that this happened there.
