Police in Tennessee are investigating after a man was shot and killed during a “prank” of stealing a YouTube video.
According to the Nashville Metro Police Department, officers responded to the parking lot at Urban Air Indoor Trampoline Park at 9:25 p.m. as 23-year-old David Starrens Jr. confessed to shooting 20-year-old Timothy Wilkes.
