Anthony Barajas, who rose to young stardom on TikTok, is dead at the age of 19.
Barajas passed away after sustaining injuries from a movie theatre shooting in California on Monday, July 26.
The TikTok star had accumulated nearly one million followers on the platform and was loved by many.
Barajas went to see “The Forever Purge” earlier this week with his friend Rylee Goodrich, 18, at a Corona, California movie theater.
The pair were shot in the head during the movie, and Goodrich was pronounced dead at the scene after both victims were discovered when workers went inside the theater to clean up after the movie screening, police said.
Barajas had been on life support since the tragedy with Corona Police Department confirming his death on Saturday, July 31.
Joseph Jimenez, 20, was arrested Tuesday night in El Cerrito, CA. According to officials, a firearm that matched the caliber of the weapon believed to be used in the killing was found where he was located.
On Friday, July 30, Jimenez was charged with murder and attempted murder in the July 26 shooting, according to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.
According to ABC 7, Jimenez faces the possibility of life without the possibility of parole or the death penalty.

The motive for the shooting remains unknown. Prosecutors say the attack appears to be a “random and unprovoked” attack.

Goodrich’s parents were joined at New Beginnings Community Church by countless family members and friends on Friday. A former classmate said of Goodrich, “Everywhere you went she lit up the room with her smile. She was always nice to everybody.”
Barajas’ vigil was held at Santa Ana’s Mater Dei High School, where he was a standout soccer player.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the fallen teens.
