(Newser) – Horror during a horror movie: An 18-year-old woman was killed and the 19-year-old TikTok personality who was with her was seriously injured during a movie theater shooting in California. KTLA reports Rylee Goodrich and Anthony Barajas, 19, attended a 9:35pm showing of The Forever Purge on Monday. Workers at the Edwards Theater in Corona went into the theater to clean up after the movie—just six tickets were sold for the screening—and found the two shot. Barajas, who goes by itsanthonymichael on TikTok, where he has nearly a million followers, is said to be on life support. A suspect was arrested on Tuesday night, reports Fox 5.

Corona Police Department Cpl. Tobias Kouroubacalis had earlier said evidence, but no gun, was recovered from the scene, per NBC Los Angeles. They later said that Joseph Jimenez, 20, was arrested at his El Cerrito home and booked on suspicion of murder, attempted murder, and robbery. He's being held on a $2 million bail. Police, who reportedly found a gun of the same caliber of that used in the shooting in Jimenez's home, say it looks to be an unprovoked attack. They had no indication of motive yet.
