Tennessee guy killed while recording a YouTube video of a robbery prank

A Tennessee man was shot and killed while shooting a YouTube video in which he simulated a robbery.

State police say 20-year-old Timothy Wilks was killed after approaching a group of people in the parking lot of a Nashville office with meat knives in their hands while filming a mugging video for his YouTube channel.

The group of young men included David Starnes Jr. who mistook the shooting for a real robbery, shooting Wilkes in self-defense. Starnes has not been charged in connection with the incident, an ongoing investigation.
