YouTubers Gavin Free and Meg Turney (both associated with Rooster Teeth) had their home invaded by man who was reportedly obsessed with Turney on January 26. Christopher Giles drove over 700 miles to Turney and Free’s home, broke in, and fired shots. Both Turney and Free were hiding the closet and stayed out of harm’s way.
Giles was confronted by police officers when he left the house, returning to his car. A few minutes later, according to The Albuquerque Journal, gunfire erupted and Giles was dead. It’s not clear whether or not Giles killed himself or was killed in exchange of gunfire with the police.

This is obviously a horrific and traumatic incident, though we’re glad both Free and Turney were not hurt.
